Arcadia Cares Future Plans
Arcadia University will revisit former goals and objectives and revitalize the effort with a new, more robust program.
The University will provide additional education and coordination efforts within the community.
Arcadia will engage in enhanced research, development, and monitoring of all campus programs—continuous improvement being the goal.
The University will update campus strategies, including mapping and inventory of all objectives.
In addition, Arcadia University will expand this effort by considering:
Creating a daily, weekly, monthly, summer/winter break protocol for system conservation (i.e. shutting off computers when not in use and shutting off all appliances).
Engaging food service and determining what food wastes can be diverted from the waste stream and donated to soup kitchens and/or farmers for livestock feed.
Using waste cooking oil for bio-fuel to run University vehicles.
Installing indoor trees and shrubs in various campus buildings that can support this plant stock – Kuch Center, Boyer Hall, etc.
More exterior trees and plant material.
Creating a University greenhouse for in-house plant production.
Participating in the Philly Car Share Program.
Participating in the Phill-Abundance Food Program.
Expanding the Oak Summit Recycling program into a more robust and responsive collection system.
Investigation into utilizing an application of a salt water Brine solution in lieu of harsh road salts for the winter de-icing program. It would be an environmentally friendly, low cost solution to this perennial problem.
