Green Campus

RDC is on the road to becoming a greener campus for a greener tomorrow.  The RDC Green Campus Task Group has one important goal: to inform and educate the College community of the importance of energy and water conservation and pertinent environmental issues. We establish targets and implement protocols for the reduction, recycling, and re-use of materials and implement programs to encourage the use of alternate transportation, increase recycling and improve energy conservation.

Do you have a suggestion for how we can help to make our campus greener? Here’s how to get a hold of us:
