    Learn. Lead. Conserve.

    If we want to make sustainability as second nature as riding a bike, we have to make it relevant across a wide variety of subjects. That's where the sustainability, energy and the environment (SEE) initiative comes in.

    Through SEE, engaged undergraduate students, faculty and staff work toward building a stronger, more environmentally sustainable future for the University and surrounding community.

    At the graduate level, students in the renewable and clean energy program are working to develop better solar energy, fuel cells, biofuels and other energy sources.

    In the Rivers Institute, students helped design a RiverMobile — a traveling watershed education laboratory. And, in the Industrial Assessment Center, engineering students have conducted more than 800 energy audits for companies. The savings? About half-a-billion dollars.

    Whether you get involved with the River Stewards, ETHOSSustainability Club, conduct sustainability-focused research or earn a SEE minor, you'll find ways at the University of Dayton to make the environment even greener.
