RIT goes green

RIT prepares for leadership in the environmental revolution

“Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.” The old saying has new meaning these days as the world’s people struggle to cope with shortages of resources as well as global warming attributed to greenhouse gasses.

With the opening of the Golisano Institute for Sustainability, RIT gained increased status for its pioneering efforts in the areas of green engineering and manufacturing. In addition to preparing students to become leaders in these areas, the institute is helping business and industry adapt.

At the same time, the campus community is making strides to operate more sustainably.
