New construction and major renovations developed following the signing of the University's Sustainability Commitments and Goals by President Hodge in Spring 2011 are required to meet LEED silver as a minimum. The projects included in this credit as having been designed and constructed in accordance with green building policies or guidelines were influenced by the concurrent development of said Commitments and Goals. Green guidelines are also included in the University's 2010 Design Standards, although these are less comprehensive than those imposed by LEED.
