Sustainability on Campus
Advancing sustainability is embedded into the college’s culture and strategic plan. The committee is comprised of students, faculty and staff working together on a variety of issues like energy conservation, renewable energy, waste reduction, land use, gardening and water conservation.
In 2007, President Tom Schwarz signed the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) with the intention of achieving carbon neutrality by 2040. Locally, the college has become certified by the Westchester Green Business Challenge, an initiative to assist and recognize green businesses in the community.
