With education as the primary focus of our business, Lamar University Dining Services is committed to fostering and promoting sustainable business principles. Our associates will lead by example through activities that minimize our impact on the environment by practicing the 3Rs, with a primary focus on reduction. Our programs will include the necessary information to encourage informed choices on both the food we conserve and the ways we interact with the natural environment.
