Energy efficient vehicles get reserved parking on the Main Campus of Lewis University. Several parking spaces are set aside in Parking Lot GG for energy efficient vehicles, such as hybrids and low-emissions vehicles. It’s part of an ongoing strategy to be in accordance with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards.

“Lewis University has made a strong commitment towards sustainability, and these designated parking spaces advances our efforts even further,” commented Don Castello, associate vice president for facilities.

In recent years, the Illinois Green Governments Coordinating Council has recognized Lewis University for achieving the bronze standard recognition level of sustainability goals in higher education as established by the Illinois Campus Sustainability Compact. The Illinois Campus Sustainability Compact encourages universities and colleges within the state to incorporate sustainability into their campus operations, academic and research programs, student activities and community outreach.
