Adler University Vancouver Campus Achieves LEED and Accessibility Designations

The Adler University Vancouver Campus recently achieved two certifications, one for energy efficiency and environmental design, and one for accessibility.

The campus earned a Gold rating by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) in February. LEED provides a framework for healthy, efficient, and cost-saving green buildings and is one of the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Green buildings create a healthier indoor environment for occupants through better indoor air quality, less harmful products, and more natural daylight. The certification demonstrates the Vancouver campus’ commitment to the environment, as well as to the well-being of its students, faculty, and staff.

Additionally, the Vancouver Campus achieved The Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification. The rating system evaluates the accessibility of commercial, institutional, and multi-unit residential buildings and sites, in an effort to help create a fully accessible and inclusive Canada. The Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certified designation demonstrates the emphasis Adler University places on following best practices in promoting accessibility for everyone.

“These certifications highlight our dedication to sustainability and inclusion, as well as our commitment to social justice,” said Bradley O’Hara, Ph.D., Executive Dean of the Vancouver Campus. “We are proud of these achievements and what they mean for our Vancouver Campus community.”
