Sustainable Built Environments in Northwest, LEED Program
WWU Covid-19 safety protocols in effect for all visitors regardless of vaccination status
Do WWU: Wash your hands, Watch your distance, Use a mask.
A mask or other suitable face covering is required indoors when other people are present and in all public and common areas, such as lobbies, hallways, stairways, restrooms, elevators and shared vehicles. Masks are also encouraged in crowded, outdoor areas. To learn more about masks, such as what types of masks will offer you protection, view the CDC masking website.
If you are attending an in-person WWU event, check the event details for updates before attending. All event attendees will have to verify proof of vaccination or negative COVID test within 72 hours of the event. Respect the community and yourself by staying home if you feel sick. Some in-person events may have virtual attendance options. Stay healthy, stay safe, stay inspired!
Sustainability applies to our culture, the environment and economics; success is tied to their integration. Part of the University's long history of focusing on the environment has been the relationship of art in the landscape as exemplified by specific works in the Outdoor Sculpture Collection. Convinced that the great rules of architecture - aesthetic design and space design - can be integrated with "green building" issues, the Western Gallery in partnership with the NW Chapter of American Institute of Architects organized this architectural exhibition, which provides demonstrations of such strategies as reduction of urban sprawl, onsite water treatment, renewable energy, and recycling of material, highlighting approximately 50 projects in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia that have been certified under the LEED [Leadership, Energy and Environmental Design] program.
