We started to make real progress on sustainability during 2010. In February we released the University's first Sustainability Report. In April we celebrated our first Sustainability Month, with student, faculty and staff activities on all three campuses. And talk about perfect timing: during Sustainability Month, the Princeton Review named us one of the nation's top 286 "green" colleges. The month concluded with a remarkable John Muir Center conference in Stockton and a lecture by the "food rock star" Michael Pollan in Sacramento.

Our campuses are becoming increasingly "greener." As a University, we've embraced reduced energy use and green building practices. The Pacific McGeorge School of Law has successfully cultivated a community garden, and plans are underway for a second garden in Stockton. This year we opened a farmer's market at the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. We are making a real commitment to sustainability at University of the Pacific.
