Climate change continues to be a primary global concern. 在mg冰球突破豪华版下载, we’ve made incorporating sustainability into the campus 和 improving our energy efficiency a strategic focus.

A major driver of this effort has been the creation of the Sustainability Committee, 一群精力充沛的教员, 工作人员, 和 students who advise the College on environmental, 财政, 和 social sustainability initiatives while providing sustainable feedback 和 support on major capital projects 和 collegiate decisions.

Worldwide Teach-In on Climate 和 Justice

埃尔迈拉大学 has joined hundreds of colleges, 大学, 12年义务教育学校, 和 faith organizations to highlight the importance of finding 和 building climate solutions. 从2022年开始, EC has held a variety of productive 和 informative panel discussions focused on climate solutions 和 justice as well as its connection with art 和 media, 时尚, physical 和 mental well-being, 周边社区, 宗教, 校园可持续性. In addition to these discussions, attendees enjoyed a locally sourced meal, found items at the upcycle flea market, 和 learned about local organizations such as 坦格伍德自然中心 和 泥泞手指农场

At EC, students are helping drive sustainability initiatives for the College. To support engagement, we developed a 可持续性奖学金 然后选了四个 可持续性的领导人 -每个班一名学生. With the campus as a canvas for their ideas, the students design meaningful projects to implement 和 take the lead in figuring out how to accomplish their goals.
