Sustainability

At Saint Michael’s College we work together to promote sustainability in all of its dimensions. We use our campus as a classroom to educate the campus community about the importance of living and working sustainably. This means using natural resources wisely and efficiently, in ways that preserve them for future generations. With extensive composting and recycling systems, water bottle refilling stations, and solar panels run out of the Natural Area, the college embraces its obligation to contribute to a socially and ecologically responsible world by connecting students, staff and faculty with opportunities, knowledge and skills to create a sustainable future.

The Sustainability Committee makes recommendations regarding sustainability to President Sterritt, who is strongly supportive of an institutional commitment to sustainability.  The committee, composed of students, staff and faculty, meets regularly to discuss priorities and goals, and to implement campus initiatives focused on sustainable solutions to multifaceted institutional challenges, and educational programs to equip students with skills to create change and better understand our rapidly changing planet.

We take every opportunity to be mindful and to appreciate the beauty and the limits of the natural world.
