Bee Campus USA

BeeCampusUSAIn 2018, the University of Illinois proudly became the first Big Ten university to receive Bee Campus USA status.  

At the U of I we recognize that pollinators are an important asset for our campus and the community, and F&S is proud to support the students' efforts to complete the necessary steps for Bee Campus USA certification. Pollinators facilitate diversity in plant species and provide us with a variety of fruits and vegetables. Each year, we celebrate pollinators on campus with a variety of awareness and hands-on events. The U of I is dedicated to the conservation of pollinator species, and we plan to continue expanding our efforts throughout each year.

The mission of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (U of I) is to enhance the lives of citizens in Illinois, across the nation, and around the world through our leadership in learning, discovery, innovation, engagement, and economic development. Our campus is committed to educating the future leaders of the world, especially regarding grand societal challenges like environmental sustainability.
