LEED Certified Buildings

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a green building certification provided by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED certified buildings look at a variety of environmental factors including energy conservation, material source, construction waste, and water efficiency. 

Per the State of South Dakota codified law, all new buildings that meet a certain size and construction cost should be built to a LEED Silver standard.

As of January 2021, SDSU has 3 LEED Gold and 14 LEED Silver buildings.
