Carnegie Mellon University

Environment at CMU

As a frontrunner, the University's Green Practices Committee has been in place since 1999 and is comprised of administrators, staff, faculty members, and students having the common goal to "develop university practices that improve environmental quality."

Environmental innovation is an integral part of Carnegie Mellon's culture, curriculum and practice.  In demonstration of this commitment, Carnegie Mellon formed the Steinbrenner Institute for Environmental Education and Research in 2004 to coordinate and advance the efforts at the intersection of research, education and practice.
