Eco-Auditing at Bloomfield College

BCU's Halls Of Ivy

Bloomfield College is participating in an innovative environmental compliance peer auditing program. The college’s participation ensures that its campus is environmentally compliant; satisfies environmental regulatory obligations and provides a safe living and learning environment for students, faculty and staff.

The environmental peer audit approach blends a self-audit and a third-party independent audit and enables trained peers from participating schools to audit each other’s campus under the direction of an experienced professional auditor. Joining Bloomfield College in its commitment to the program are eight other NJ schools including Atlantic Cape Community College, Camden County College, Centenary College, College of Saint Elizabeth, Cumberland County College, Drew University, Georgian Court University and Saint Peter’s College.

The New Jersey Council of Community Colleges sponsored this program which is supported by the New Jersey Association of Independent Colleges.

The program will enable Bloomfield College to comply with all major federal environmental programs including air, water, pesticides, solid and hazardous wastes, hazardous substances and chemicals, environmental response, emergency planning, community right-to-know, and toxic substances control.

[Full disclosure: Along with President Richard Levao, three of the most eco-friendly people we know, Paul Russo, Pat Kenschaft and Fred Chichester, currently teach at BCU.]
