We are also very conscious of sustainability. The Princeton Review has even saluted the University of Montana as one of the nation’s most environmentally responsible “green colleges.” The Conference Center at the School of Extended and Lifelong Learning strives to be a leader in campus sustainability initiatives. These efforts include decreasing physical waste by reducing the number of hard copy materials at conferences and eliminating the use of bottled water as well as attitudinal changes such as promoting online learning and sharing information electronically. One of the most notable sustainability undertakings is the installation of solar panels and energy monitoring. SELL partially relies on solar panels that line the roof of the building, providing efficient green power, and taking advantage of those gorgeous sunny days on the UM campus. These panels can produce 2,300 watts of power and also serve research purposes via an energy-monitoring system that tracks how much power the system produces throughout the day.
