Sustainability

Our colors are two shades of green.

With that, we like to think Delta's founders had a plan from the start in providing a philosophy that has grown into a way of life.

Our approach to sustainability includes local and national partnerships that help to set the foundation of our sustainability focus. We use the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS) as our framework for creating programs and initiatives that our students, staff and faculty can take leadership roles in. Together, we create opportunities where we can make a difference through academics as well as community engagement, operations, and planning and administration. Our green campus is about more than just the environment. Its a place where people learn to create resilient communities where everyone thrives!

Our campuses are designed to support learning-centered communities where our partners can get hands-on experience when it comes to sustainability. These are just highlights of some things we have been working on!
