The University of Connecticut has two annual Environmental Compliance Roundtables or ECRs. One ECR is for the main campus in Storrs (which includes the nearby Depot Campus), and the other ECR is for the regional campuses. The ECR – formerly called the Environmental Compliance Team or ECT – is born from the UConn’s Environmental Management Plan (EMP) as a way to foster communications about common environmental compliance issues.
Adopted by UConn in 2006 and approved by the CTDEEP in 2007, the EMP formalizes UConn’s environmental compliance policies and procedures. The purposes of the ECRs are to:
- Share information about environmental issues faced in day-to-day operations and maintenance activities;
- Provide UConn staff with support and guidance to improve compliance; and
- Inform the UConn community of changes and updates to statutes and regulations.
Both ECR groups represent University departments with operations that may have regulatory compliance responsibilities. The Regional ECR group also includes faculty whose research activities cause them to have a role in environmental compliance. Members include representatives from the following UConn departments.
