Chatham recognized as a Tree Campus USA for the seventh consecutive year
For the seventh year in a row, Chatham University received the Tree Campus USA recognition in 2018 for the commitment shown by the University to encourage students and personnel to care for the planet’s tree resources.
Tree Campus USA is a national program created in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation to honor colleges and universities for effective campus forest management and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals. Chatham University achieved the title by meeting Tree Campus USA’s five standards, which include maintaining a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance and student service-learning project. Currently, there are only 368 campuses across the United States with this recognition.
