LEED, also known as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is designed to have a positive impact on our health and wellbeing. Buildings under LEED follow set designing, constructing and operating standards as set by the U.S. Green Building Council. Such standards prove to be sustainable to the building’s environment and its occupants before, during and after construction is complete.
Currently, MU is home to 5 platinum LEED buildings, 6 gold LEED buildings, 1 silver LEED building and 2 certified LEED buildings. To learn more about how vital LEED is for our environment, our campus and our community visit LEED’s website.
