Many colleges and universities are doing their part to react to environmental challenges without breaking the bank. For most, intelligent response involves technology. Schools such as Pennsylvania State University, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Adelphi University (New York), Hamilton College (New York), and Fairfield University (Connecticut) are turning to new technologies and tech products to cut down on energy usage, control HVAC systems, and save big bucks. Still other schools, such as the University of California-Berkeley, have invested in renewable energy measures While many of these efforts have been successful, they are not without their tests. For instance: How do IT managers justify capital expenditures on new tech products, when the goal is to save money? How do campuses raise conservation awareness among students and faculty members? Academic technologists are compelled to answer questions like these, but sometimes the answers aren't easy ones. This article offers a look at the strategies employed by these universities.
