Dominican University of California is committed to becoming an environmentally sustainable campus. The Campus Sustainability and Utilization Policy Committee is one of the five main governance committees of the University and is responsible for supporting “green” initiatives on campus. It serves as a resource to the University’s governance system by assessing environmental policies, procedures and practices leading to the development of plans of action that will help Dominican become a model of environmental sustainability.

It was created to tap the wealth of intellectual capital in place at Dominican in order to support existing and emerging “green” academic programs.
