WKU Office of Sustainability - Green Buildings





When it comes to green buildings, WKU was an "early adopter", embracing the idea during the design phase of the new College of Education, which is now LEED Gold certified by the US Green Building Council. WKU has committed to build all new buildings and renovations to LEED standards, ensuring our buildings will be designed and constructed with energy and the environment in mind.
