We are the heart and soul of sustainability,

where humanity and nature connect.

Our Sustainability Strategy

A sustainable world is a diverse, safe, healthy, and just world for all planetary life while living within a thriving environment that is ecologically viable over the long term. The College of the Liberal Arts Sustainability Council has three tenants of focus that help the College achieve this goal.  


We are committed to an integration of sustainability into the educational and career development experience of Liberal Arts students both inside and outside the classroom.


We are supporting, bringing attention to, and advancing sustainability-focused research within the College by bringing in scholars and creating labs with a sustainability focus.


We provide recommendations for how the College can responsibly use natural resources, care for the planet, and work with efforts led by the Sustainability Institute.

Resources that facilitate each of these efforts can be found through our News and Events and on the pages for our faculty, staff, and students
