ACU's Green Mission

ACU Green’s mission is to:

  • Promote a culture of sustainability and sustainable practices
  • Promote prudent stewardship of resources
  • Ensure that future generations of ACU students can enjoy God’s creation

When you arrive on campus, you’ll see many green initiatives in action and many others are behind-the-scenes. Our sustainability efforts include conserving energy with efficient HVAC, plumbing and lighting systems and saving on fuel by using electric carts on campus rather than full-size vehicles.

Sustainability Initiatives

Bee Campus USA


Our campus continues to foster an ongoing dialogue to raise awareness of the role pollinators play in our communities and what each of us can do to provide them with healthy habitat. After all, one in three bites of food we eat is courtesy of insect pollination.

Feral Cat Initiative


The Feral Cat Initiative involves humanely capturing cats, neutering and vaccinating them, then returning them to campus. More than 100 cats have been spayed and neutered since the program began four years ago. About 70 “wild” cats make campus their home.

Tree Campus USA


ACU has been recognized as a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation for the third straight year. We continue making a commitment to planting and maintaining our trees to help reduce the amount of energy our campus needs to generate.

EPA Green Power Partnership

ACU joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership in December 2019. The more than 25 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power used and generated annually by ACU meets the standard of 100% electricity used.
