Central to the university’s mission is environmental sustainability. Mercyhurst not only offers a Sustainability Studies curriculum, but also signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment in 2007 with a long-term goal of carbon neutrality for the institution. To achieve this goal, Mercyhurst strives for energy efficiency through the incorporation of smart buildings throughout the campus. As the university has embarked on this journey, U&S Services has supported its effort by providing HVAC controls for the Hurt Academic Center. U&S also deployed access control that is integrated with point of sale (POS) systems at the campus bookstore, on-campus and some off-campus restaurants, and campus vending machines.
