Energy Conservation Program
This efficiency program, established in 1992, has resulted in an annual savings of $2.5 million.

Guaranteed Mortgage Program
Introduced in 1994, this program provides 100 percent mortgages through four banks to employees purchasing homes in the immediate University neighborhood, thereby eliminating the need for a down payment. With the University as guarantor, the home buyer does not need to purchase mortgage insurance.

Fair Wage Initiative
Base pay for the lowest-paid employees was increased in 2001 as part of an overall effort to improve staff salaries. Through this program, the base-pay minimum will rise to $9.01 per hour by 2003.

Zone Management
Instituted in 1996, the Zone Management Program moved the maintenance and repair functions of the University from a remote, off-campus site to strategically placed sites on campus.

Expanded Powers for Public Safety
In 1995 the Department of Public Safety was granted additional authority to deal with campus crime. The governor signed the enhanced-authority bill into law as part of an overall effort to better support the teaching and learning environment on private college campuses. Other public safety improvements include a zoned patrol system, bike patrols, a South Campus public safety station, and parking patrols.

The University has made gains in staff diversity, though the progress has been slower than with faculty.


Faculty diversity has increased during the past 10 years in tandem with an increasingly diverse student body. SUís percentage of underrepresented groups among the faculty is close to the average at colleges and universities across the country.
