Connecticut College strives to be a leader in sustainability among campuses nationwide.
At Connecticut College, sustainability is a framework by which long-lasting solutions to local and global challenges are developed through understanding the connections among social equity, environmental stewardship and economic wellbeing and including all three within all decision-making and strategic planning processes.
Current sustainability efforts include:
- Providing hands-on learning opportunities for students through the Sustainability Fellows program
- Working with faculty to integrate sustainability across the curriculum
- Educating the campus community on sustainable practices
- Collecting and analyzing campus sustainability data.
