Faculty and Staff

As a Faculty and Staff member, there are many ways you can help NAU reduce its environmental impact. You can help conserve energy by adopting two key sustainability behaviors:


  • Turn off and unplug electronic devices, or
  • Use a power strip and turn it off after devices have been shut down.
  • Avoid the use of space heaters by dressing in layers.
  • Use devices in common areas (coffee pot, mini-fridge, microwave, etc.).



  • Turn off lights when leaving your office or unoccupied common areas (copy room, break room, etc.).
  • Use natural light when possible.
  • Turn off task lighting (desk lamps, standing lamps, etc.) when not in use.
