Environmental Sustainability

To reduce waste, we've integrated the following up-cycling and recycling practices:

  • Establishing a purchasing policy, including consumable goods
  • Reducing energy, water, greenhouse, and gas emissions
  • Implementing a comprehensive waste management procedure to plan
  • Preserving nature in and around campus

Sustainability is not about recycling cans and bottles. It’s about recycling our values and learning how to live differently. It involves acting now, and it involves acting on behalf of somebody other than just oneself.
