Campus Sustainability Development at Duke Kunshan University
Fall 2016 - Spring 2017
As the Sustainable Duke Office at Duke University determines the next steps on how best to integrate a satellite campus such as Duke Kunshan University (DKU) into its Climate Action Plan, it is important for both DKU and Duke to gain an in-depth understanding of campus sustainability at other higher education institutions. Through a review of literature and a case study of campus sustainability at Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST), this project seeks to provide a baseline for further studies on sustainable development at DKU by (1) identifying the types of sustainability initiatives currently taking place at HKUST, (2) understanding the specific challenges of implementing such initiatives, and (3) providing recommendations for DKU on how best to incorporate sustainability as it continues to expand its physical campus and academic programs.
