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 are opportunities to 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 can thrive!
