When properly planned in collaboration with municipal agencies, campus green infrastructure strategies promote resilience, sustainability, and livability as well as optimize campus stormwater management and drainage performance. Although unique in their practice and infrastructure challenges, Loyola University Chicago and Loyola University Medical Center used strategic partnerships, innovative planning solutions, and green infrastructure to create resilient, livable campuses. Investment in green infrastructure might seem like it has a limited impact, but through strategic partnerships and a comprehensive approach, we’ll demonstrate how you can make tangible improvements and promote resiliency on your campus through green infrastructure.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Approach local agencies to collaboratively create green infrastructure or stormwater solutions that will benefit your campus and neighboring community.
  2. Work with an engineering professional to investigate infrastructure solutions for a livable and engaging campus that is resilient for a full range of storm events.
  3. Develop an educational program for university students and visitors to learn about green infrastructure, sustainability strategies, and resilient stormwater strategies using your campus as a living-learning laboratory.
  4. Apply a holistic approach to solve broader infrastructure problems by thinking upstream and downstream of your campus.
