Environmental Audit

In the Fall 2007 Semester, students in the Environmental Studies department conducted an extensive series of surveys and interviews to evaluate the CPAA Faculty and Staff on their awareness of environmentally friendly practices. Learn more about the surveys, the students’ findings and final recommendations on our Environmental Audit page.

Green Purchasing Guide

UIS purchasers can utilize this Green Purchasing Guide to make the greenest choices when purchasing office supplies from our e-procurement system, iBuy.

Office Sustainability Tutorials

Our Office Sustainability Tutorials outline the methods used by the CPAA office staff to save money, save time and reduce waste.

Alternative Transportation

Taking an alternative form of transportation or carpooling to UIS is cheaper and more environmentally friendly than driving alone in your car. Our Alternative Transportation page has information about the Springfield Mass Transit District bus system, links to local Bicycling maps and Carpooling tips.
