Mission Statement

Our mission is to integrate sustainability into all aspects of campus life by:

  • Educating students, faculty, staff, and the community about environmental, social, and economic issues;
  • Promoting environmental awareness and responsibility in personal and institutional choices; and
  • Inspiring innovative environmental solutions, behavioral changes, and ethical stewardship of the natural world.

To accomplish these goals, we have adopted the Natural Step framework for achieving sustainability.
