A Green College

Respecting Earth

All of us at Advanced Colleges of America respect our planet Earth and the natural resources she provides us with. We’ve all been dreaming about paperless offices and having all records up and running on servers in the cloud but cost, culture, and misinformation all contribute to the lack of 100% Electronic Document and Records Management System (EDRMS) implementation. However, the faculty, staff and students of Advanced Colleges of America have overcome most challenges to move toward becoming almost completely EDRMS-dependent. Advanced Colleges of America is fully committed to decreasing the carbon footprint of our entire workforce, our student body and vendors, and to contributing to a world that is far more environmentally conscious and mindful toward preserving planet Earth for future generations. Reducing our carbon footprint can also be seen as reducing our energy and resource usage costs, thereby improving the efficiency and costs of managing our college. It is only a matter of time that government and large organizations will be requiring evidence of effective green strategies and practical steps to not only alter an organization’s behavior, but also make considerable long-term cost and efficiency savings that can be measured. However, as responsible citizens of the Earth, we at ACA are committed to conducting business in a manner that manages environmental issues responsibly. We fulfill this commitment by:
> Complying with environmental regulations;
> Conducting operations in an environmentally sound manner;
> Applying the principles of reduce, reuse, and recycle in all processes;
> Promoting environmental responsibility among our employees and students;
> Striving to ensure that suppliers agree to comply with environmental regulations;
> Securing hundreds of clinical sites throughout the United States, so students can stay close to home and decrease travel times;
> Pursuing continuous improvement in our environmental performance; and
> Clearly communicating ACA’s environmental policy, practices, and impact to interested parties.
