Colorado School of Mines hosted a public meeting on April 18 to provide the community with an update on its construction projects and progress of reaching some sustainability goals.
Mines continues to update its buildings to be more modern and efficient, and has been pushing recycling efforts, said Barb O'Kane, Mines' executive director of environmental health and safety.
Ninety percent of all the waste from Engineering Days (E-Days) events was either composted or recycled, O'Kane said.
“We have hundreds of students who are excited about being more sustainable,” she said.
Mines' Master Plan is also in the final stages toward completion. Some future projects identified in the Master Plan are a child care center at Mines Park, the Subsurface Frontiers Research Building and a student innovation hub is in programming planning.
