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.
Welcome to SIUE — where innovation is vital and our growth is planned. We invite you to explore our Campus Growth news. See firsthand what makes SIUE a premier institution on the move, and why U.S. News & World Report has designated us an “up-and-coming school.”
“SIUE is a vibrant, growing campus with unlimited potential as a premier metropolitan university,” said SIUE Chancellor Julie Furst-Bowe.
Since fiscal year 2006, the University has embarked on a more-than-$300-million construction and infrastructure improvement plan, adding new state-of-the-art buildings, and enhancing and expanding existing structures. Many projects have been completed and others still are under way.
Projects either recently completed or on the horizon include:
Renovation of Science Lab Building East, our original Science Building
An extensive Dental Research Lab renovation project on the Alton campus
Completion of the Engineering Building Annex
An array of facility and infrastructure improvements
Renovation of Morris University Center Union Station
Numerous other exciting projects
SIUE has superior, knowledgeable faculty and an 16-to-1 student-teacher ratio, as well as a beautiful 2,660-acre campus. For the 10th consecutive year, the University has been named among the best Regional Universities Midwest by U.S. News & World Report. We have again been recognized as one of the top 10 public universities in that category, according to the “Best Colleges of 2014” edition.
