Sustainability at SIUE
Whether through Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certifiable construction projects in its buildings or the campus bike share and recycling programs initiated by the Sustainability Advisory Group, SIUE encourages environmental preservation and stewardship, while promoting scholarship.

SIUE is nearing the completion of an extensive, more-than-$300-million construction and infrastructure improvement plan that already has resulted in thousands of students, faculty, staff and campus visitors enjoying numerous finished additions to campus life.

We provide our faculty, staff, students and visitors with the highest quality academic and student-focused structures in which to learn and enjoy campus life. We offer the best sustainable programs and features — through classroom learning, student service and engagement opportunities, and the features and amenities available in our state-of-the-art and renovated facilities. We always are striving to exceed your expectations.
