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

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