Fuqua has a long-standing commitment to environmental stewardship, and the campus reflects our focus on sustainability. Our students, faculty, and staff all contribute to lowering our school’s carbon footprint by using efficient transportation options and supporting waste reduction by participating in single-stream recycling, composting, and the use of reusable utensils and food containers. Energy-efficient lighting and HVAC, as well as water-saving devices, are in place throughout Fuqua’s facilities. The sustainable construction and design of our new JB Duke Hotel and renovated Thomas Executive Conference Center included all-new infrastructure to improve energy and water efficiency and indoor environmental quality and landscaping to reduce runoff.
We integrate technology in ways that champion collaboration. High-performance encrypted wireless access runs throughout the campus, while kiosk stations provide fast access to e-mail and information. Motion sensors show real-time team room availability, with an online app to reserve space and manage logistics for meetings. Team spaces have wireless shared displays for project work, while an open incubator collaboration space facilitates larger groups around multiple flat panel displays.
A proprietary intranet provides personalized access to course-related material, school events and announcements, career services information, and community directories. A student life collaboration platform provides a one-stop shop for our students to manage all their club-related activities, including events, websites, newsletters, blogs, and external communications. Specialists in our Technical Support Center support the community’s IT needs via walk-in, appointment, telephone, e-mail, and TSC Online access via both video and text tutorials.
