William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey, is committed to environmental sustainability and is proud to provide a positive example for its 11,500 students while leading by example for our surrounding community and beyond.

William Paterson’s campus-wide solar panel installation is a dramatic and visible sign of the University’s commitment to the environment. The solar initiative, with phase one completed in 2010 and phase two beginning in spring 2012, ranks among the top ten largest installations at higher education institutions in the United States.

The University targets carbon neutrality as a goal and includes conservation efforts that integrate sustainability across the curriculum, such as a new bachelor’s degree in environmental sustainability. This degree will unite areas of tangible study and research, and include courses in environmental science, biology, chemistry, mathematics, law, political science, and economics. Graduates will be prepared with the interdisciplinary skills needed for careers in sustainability to meet the growing demands in academia, business, and government.

The conversion to smart buildings via upgraded energy management systems and use of electric maintenance vehicles has vastly reduced the University’s total energy consumption, as well as energy costs. In the past decade, the size of the physical plant has increased by 16.5 percent, while electric energy consumption was reduced by 30 percent and natural gas consumption by 50 percent.

In addition to this significant reduction in carbon gas emissions, the University has saved more than $17 million over the same time period through cost avoidance.

William Paterson University continues to vigorously pursue energy efficiency initiatives and educational programs with the strong support of students, faculty, administrators, alumni, and community leaders.

William Paterson University Mentoring Project

William Paterson University biology professor David Gilley, who is New Jersey’s only academic bee researcher, is mentoring senior biology major Ashley Miranda in her research project, which investigates the effect of pesticides on honey bees. Undergraduates majoring in science at the University have the advantage of working one-on-one with faculty members on their research, an activity often reserved for graduate students at other institutions.

Miranda, a senior, studies bees exposed to imidacloprid, a common pesticide for crops that attract bees. She examines health, weight, productivity, brood/larvae, and activity within the treated colonies, in comparison to colonies not exposed to the pesticide. Any effect would represent a potential environmental problem and Miranda hopes to determine specific effects of exposure. “In general, I would like to push for more environmentally friendly pesticides,” she adds.

Gilley says he enjoys having the opportunity to supervise Miranda’s research. “One of the reasons I came to William Paterson is because of the unique opportunity I have to provide undergraduates with research experience,” he says. “One-on-one mentorship is important training for the next generation of scientists because it allows them to develop critical thinking skills and technical expertise within a nurturing intellectual environment.”

Miranda says she was intrigued by Gilley’s bee research, which examines how pollen-gathering bees report the location of the best food source to their nest mates, and which spurred her to ask if she could work with him. “Science spurs my curiosity. I love it,” she says. Her future goal is to pursue medical research dealing with neuroscience and behavior.
