Since 2008-2009, the university has spearheaded the following projects to completion:

  • Trayless dining, implemented in Fall 2008, which resulted in reducing food waste in the Dining Hall by 67%. Mount Mercy's efforts were lauded in the Cedar Rapids Gazette as a leader in this area.
  • Alliant Energy upgrades to campus facilities, implemented in the Spring 2009, which resulted in reducing campus electricity usage by 25%.
  • Tracking software for copiers and printers, implemented in Fall 2009, which resulted in reducing campus paper usage by 40%.

Campus-wide initiatives promoting sustainabiity at Mount Mercy University now include:

  • Recycling programs in all campus buildings
  • Participation in the annual Recyclemania contest
  • Distribution of water bottles to new freshmen, transfer, and graduate students
  • Recyclable paper products as part of dining services
  • Refilling stations on water fountains
  • Faculty and staff fellowships devoted to sustainability
  • "Ideas into Action," the mini-grant program for sustainability projects
  • "Awakening the Dreamer" symposium
  • Bicycling awareness with racks, loaner bikes, and a campus bike map
  • Reusable mugs for all new employees
  • Green Office certification program
