Environment and Sustainability

Baptist Health Sciences University is analogous to a small city encompassing within the campus borders a myriad of diverse operations and activities that can impact the environment. These can include laboratories, student housing, vehicles, housekeeping, construction and demolition, grounds maintenance, drinking water supply, as well as the management of hazardous materials, ozone-depleting substances, asbestos, and hazardous, solid, and radiological waste. Many of these are regulated and have increasingly high operational costs. Yet they also present great opportunities for pollution prevention and the conservation of natural resources. 

Whether motivated by enforcement actions, a desire to improve community relations or reputation, the values and commitment to a sustainable future, and/or the need to reduce or avoid costs, Baptist University is spending more resources than ever before to comply with our environmental, health and safety obligations as well as explore the opportunities to improve environmental performance and sustainability.

God's Blessings

Love the Lord you God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it:  Love your neighbor as yourself.

Matthew 22:37-38
