Ursinus College is making great strides to become a more environmentally-friendly campus. They have constructed a wetland that is available for students to do their research and to provide them with a place where they can appreciate nature first hand. They also have created an organic garden, which provides the students with pesticide/chemical- free foods for students and faculty. Their commitment to helping reducing their impact on the environment is shown through their adoption of the President's Climate Commitment, which surely will provide them with the will and dedication to develop skills that will help them reduce any negative or hazardous actions towards the environment. However, there are other steps the college can take to make the commitment more salient, such as creating a policy to reduce the use of cars on campus. They are a main source of hazardous elements being released to the environment, and any policy to improve that will make a great impact. Also, more quantitate data about their progress would help them to readjust their goals as necessary, as well as give others a chance to take a look at their successes.
