RMU has recently joined AICUP's "Environmental Self-Audit Program". As the US Environmental Protection Agency began conducting audits of colleges and universities, it was recognized that there were opportunities for these institutions to improve practices related to environmental compliance. This program provides a proactive approach and encourages voluntary compliance. By joining the program, RMU has committed to having a comprehensive environmental audit of our campuses. The audit will be completed, under the direction of third-party consultant, by a team of peers from other AICUP member institutions. RMU is also committed to taking appropriate action on noted deficiencies. RMU's Safety Officer will participate as an auditor of other institutions. We anticipate that RMU will be audited in the Spring of 2007.
