Jackson State University

Jackson State University's Sustainable Campus promotes positive environmental changes in the behaviors and actions of JSU students, faculty, staff, and surrounding community. We work to reduce negative environmental impacts and to create sustainable solutions for our daily lives.

The school has shifted to a paperless payroll system for its employees, and as an Apple Distinguished School, has incorporated iPad technology in the undergraduate curriculum to cut its paper consumption and textbook orders. Additionally, JSU students have planted sustainable vegetable gardens throughout the community surrounding the university, and they distribute energy efficient light bulbs to households free of charge to save citizens’ energy costs.
