About the Department

The Buildings & Grounds department supports the Baldwin Wallace University mission statement by providing an environment committed to quality service to students, faculty and staff in a responsive and caring manner.

The department strives to create a comfortable environment for learning and living by regulating building heating, cooling, electrical, gas and water systems and by responding to crises on campus to help protect the safety of students, staff and faculty including plumbing, heating, ice/snow, electrical and other building problems.

Buildings & Grounds creates and maintains a safe, clean and functional landscape for students, faculty and staff by:

  • Supporting outdoor events for the campus community and offering a positive first impression to visitors of our campus and community.
  • Maintaining safe walkways and parking lots through snow removal, salting and repairing any tripping hazards.
  • Continuing to make improvements that not only add to beautification but address the needs of accessibility for our handicapped students.
  • Maintaining safety programs including an MSDS Program that ensures staff, students and local emergency responders will have accurate and immediate information in the need of an emergency.
