Wilbur Wright College is a Tree Campus USA for the fifth year in a row, as designated by the Arbor Day Foundation.
Tree Campus USA is a national program created in 2008 to honor colleges and universities for effective campus
forest management and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals. Toyota helped launch the
program and continues its generous financial support this year.
Wilbur Wright College, one of the City Colleges of Chicago, achieved the title by meeting Tree Campus USA’s
five standards, which include maintaining a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual
expenditures toward trees, an Arbor Day observance and student service-learning projects.
