Florida A&M University (FAMU), prominently located on the highest hill in Florida’s capital city of Tallahassee, is a part of the State University System of Florida and the premiere school among historically black colleges. Distinguished by lush foliage and massive oaks, FAMU's main campus comprises 156 buildings spread over 422 acres. For more than 123 years, FAMU has served the citizens of the State of Florida and the nation through its preeminent educational programs that are the building blocks for a legacy of academic excellence with caring.

Through the Better Buildings Challenge, FAMU is committed to reducing energy use intensity across the portfolio and reducing campus wide greenhouse gas emissions. Building on their recently completed energy performance contract, FAMU will pursue deeper conservation measures and create a living laboratory of sustainable facilities management by integrating research and hands-on teaching experiences.
