Join students, faculty, staff and VIP guests as USD celebrates the completion of two major milestones in our quest to become one of the nation’s most sustainable universities.

Take pride in our university as we celebrate “Toreros Running on Sunshine” with presentations, free food, performances by Mayday Parade and Every Avenue and a special, surprise event you won't want to miss.

Since November of 2009:

  • USD has installed nearly 5,000 photovoltaic solar panels on top of eleven campus buildings.
  • Implemented a multi-tiered energy efficiency program that will reduce water use by 33% and save USD more than $1 million annually.

And did you know?

  • USD’s recently completed solar panel installation is the tenth largest solar project on a college or university campus in the United States.
  • USD has reduced its energy use by nearly 15%.
  • The National Science Foundation awarded USD and the Climate Change Education Partnership (CCEP) a $1 million grant to increase climate science literacy.
  • USD has reduced its water usage to 1991 levels.

November 16 marks all that the USD community has done to continue on toward an even greener, cleaner future.

But for now, it’s time to celebrate how far we’ve already come.
