可持续性

There are many ways to be a part of the sustainability culture at The University of Tulsa.

If you live on campus, you can save energy by preparing your residence for any extended time you are away by:

  • Closing blinds and tilt the slats upwards.
  • Unplugging all chargers, 球迷, 咖啡壶, candle warmers and other items that are plugged into an outlet that can be unplugged without damage.
  • Emptying out, clean, unplug and leave personal refrigerator doors open.
  • Turning off TVs, computers and printers.
  • Turning off all lights.

Please contact energy specialists David Ellsworth at dje2853@www.yangchunsanyue.com if you have any questions and Facilities Management if you have any service/maintenance requests. Thanks for supporting sustainability on campus!

  • Cenergistic Partnership

    University of Tulsa 总统 Gerard Clancy and the TU Board of Trustees have announced a partnership with the Dallas-based energy conservation firm Cenergistic to implement a new energy sustainability program that will increase technology, scaling capacity and organizational continuity among the university’s 物理设施 systems.

TU has a long history of engaging in sustainability projects including reducing water consumption among common campus areas, eliminating paper usage by moving to electronic records, installing solar panels, implementing recycling initiatives and adding educational content to its website about off-campus conservation strategies. TU also is home to a sustainability committee featuring faculty, staff and 学生 who encourage campus engagement and conduct environmentally friendly research. Teaming up with Cenergistic reinforces TU’s priorities on further reducing energy usage, capturing additional cost savings and providing more resources for the Physical Plant staff.

    “Our partnership with Cenergistic will help us close funding and personnel gaps, allowing us to spend our budget where it matters: providing 学生 an exceptional education with the appropriate resources, Jason Grunin说, TU assistant vice president of business and energy. “Every dollar we save on energy helps us further the environment, experience and education of our 学生.”
