[DNR] Indiana recognizes nine “Tree Campuses"
Start Date: 5/2/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 5/2/2014
Entry Description
Nine Indiana colleges and universities have achieved Tree Campus USA status for outstanding management of their urban forests.

The honored institutions are Butler University, DePauw University, Earlham College, Indiana State University, IUPUI (Indiana University/Purdue University), Indiana University- Bloomington, Ivy Tech Community College-Southern Indiana, Purdue University and Vincennes University.

Tree Campus started in 2008 with Indiana State University and Indiana University-Bloomington as the first two campuses in Indiana with this status.

To achieve Tree Campus USA status, higher education institutions must:
- Establish a Campus Tree Advisory Committee of students, faculty, facility staff, and the community at large,
- Develop a campus tree-care plan and campus tree program,
- Dedicate annual expenditures for tree planting, care and maintenance,
- Hold an Arbor Day observance on campus or in the community, and
- Coordinate a student service learning project.
