Gold Talon Suite

In building a culture of sustainbility across campus, the Gold Talon Program was created to help guide students, staff, and faculty in creating healthy, sustainable events and spaces. This three-tiered program recognizes efforts to incorporate the university's mission of economic vitality, social equity, and environmental stewardship. Departments, organizations, and even a student's residence can participate in the Gold Talon Program. 


Currently, the Gold Talon Program is accepting applications to certify events, offices, conferences, and student residences. The rating system is a way for departments, organizations, and individuals to be recognized for implementing sustainable practices and educating their guests on what is possible when creating sustainable spaces.
