Connecticut College is a leader in sustainability among campuses nationwide.
As a residential liberal arts college, Connecticut College has developed a system of collaboration among students, faculty and staff to create a sustainable atmosphere on campus and within the New London community.
At Connecticut College, sustainability is a framework by which long-lasting solutions to local and global challenges are developed through understanding the connections among social equity, environmental stewardship, and economic well-being and including all three within all decision-making and strategic planning processes.
Campus sustainability efforts are rooted in the educational mission of the College. Efforts include integrating sustainability across the curriculum, educating the campus community, modeling sustainable practices and providing real-life learning opportunities for students.
Students play a huge part in developing and achieving sustainability goals, and an even bigger part in planning and implementing programs on campus.
