The Task Force recommends a mission-driven approach to sustainability for the College with three goals:

  • Curriculum: Building a culture of sustainability and diffusing sustainability across the curriculum. 
  • Campus: Institutionalizing the College’s Sustainability Efforts with the aim of better communicating past and current sustainability-related collaborations and achievements, and cultivating new ones. 
  • Community: Establishing partnerships with community organizations, city government, and other sustainability-related efforts, as well as supporting existing partnerships, to nurture innovative, cross-sector, collaborative approaches to sustainability challenges.
