New bottled-water 
policy implemented

RIT has implemented a new policy in 
which departments and campus groups will no longer be allowed to use university funds to purchase single-serving bottles of water. Bottled water will still be available for sale in vending machines, at sporting events and in retail locations on 
campus if individuals choose to spend their 
own money. Water fountains are abundant 
on campus and water is available at fountain locations in dining centers at no cost.

“In a time when we are increasingly mindful of the rising cost of education and are working hard to enhance campus sustainability efforts, this move just makes sense,” says RIT President Bill Destler.
