On Campus - Life on Land
As the state of Florida’s University of Distinction in Environmental Resilience, Florida International University has led research and advocacy initiatives for Life On Land for decades. With a campus located at the edge of the Florida Everglades, we also recognize the need for living and working sustainably as a university community.
Finding innovative ways to better protect people and the planet is a core function of how we live, work and play. FIU’s Department of Environmental Health and Safety is charged with ensuring university compliance with regulations, statutes, guidance and best management practices for environmental protection. The university’s current Environmental Management Policy was first implemented in 2006 and most recently updated in 2021.
