Mission


Mission

Fayetteville State University is committed to being a good environmental steward and proactive manager of energy, water and other natural resources within the University's control. The University is also obligated to ensure full compliance with all applicable local, state, and federal environmental laws and regulations.

Thus, the University has made sustainability a core value of its institutional operations and its planning, capital construction and purchasing practices. In so doing, the University has become a signatory to the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) now known as Second Nature's Carbon Commitment in which it commits to "modeling ways to minimize global warming emissions, and by providing the knowledge and the educated graduates to achieve climate neutrality" and to live up to the Climate Leadership statement:

"We, the undersigned presidents and chancellors of colleges and universities, believe firmly in the power, potential, and imperative of higher education's key role in shaping a sustainable society. Not only are we deeply concerned about the increasing pace and intensity of global climate change and the potential for unprecedented detrimental impacts, but we also understand that technology, infrastructure, global interconnectedness, and our greatest asset - engaged, committed, smart students - allow us to explore bold and innovative solutions and to lead in climate action and sustainable solutions."
