Bee Campus USA fosters ongoing dialogue to raise awareness of the role pollinators play in our communities and what each of us can do to provide them with healthy habitat.

​The Bee Campus USA program endorses a set of commitments, defined in an application, for creating sustainable habiatats for pollinators, which are vital to feeding the planet. 

JMU is proud to be a contributing member to Bee Campus USA. As a member, JMU will commit to the following: 

  • Create a Campus Pollinator Habitat Plan to offer a valuable landscape management model applicable to local landscapes by 2020
  • Host annual campus events(s) to raise awareness of importance of pollinators and to acknowledge JMU certification as a Bee Campus USA institution
  • Annually sponsor and track student service-learning projects to enhance pollinator habitats on-and off-campus
  • At least biennially offer a course and/or workshop on Pollinator Ecology and/or Integrated Pest Management and/or Landscaping for Pollinators and/or Native Plants
  • Post signage regarding pollinators to educate the campus and broader community about pollinator-friendly landscaping principles
