In 2007, the presidents and chancellor from all three institutions on the Auraria Campus signed the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). This commits the institutions to:

  • Complete an emissions inventory
  • Within two years, set a target date and interim milestones for becoming climate neutral
  • Take immediate steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by choosing from a list of short-term actions
  • Integrate sustainability into the curriculum and make it part of the educational experience
  • Make the action plan, inventory, and progress reports publicly available

Periodic reports are available on the ACUPCC website for the Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the University of Colorado Denver. These reports include:

  • Annual greenhouse gas inventories
  • Progress reports
  • Climate action plans
