Millikan Laboratory and Andrew Science Hall achieved LEED Platinum, the highest level of certification.

Pomona College employs the highest sustainability standards with every new construction project. Recognizing the challenge of adding square footage to already straining resources, Pomona College follows LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) practices with each step of the construction process. Mandated by the Sustainability Action Plan (2011), the College strives for a minimum of LEED Gold level certification with each project.
