Kentucky State University is committed to national and state wide environmental and energy initiatives. The University’s commitment to environmental protection, responsibility and stewardship is reflected in many of its teaching, research and community outreach activities. The University shall continue to promote a strong environmental focus, and expand its reputation as an environmentally responsible institution.

The first responsibility for adherence to this policy lies with the faculty, staff members and students directly involved. If there is reason to believe that this policy is not being adhered to, the matter should be reported to the administrator of Facility Operations for investigation and resolution. If the matter cannot be resolved at that level, it should be referred to the next higher administration level for resolution.
