Connecticut College is a leader in sustainability among campuses nationwide.

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.

Current sustainability efforts include:

  • providing hands-on learning opportunities for students through the Sustainability Fellows program
  • working with faculty to integrate sustainability across the curriculum
  • educating the campus community on sustainable practices
  • collecting and analyzing campus sustainability data.

In March 2018, Connecticut College received a Silver rating from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education AASHE STARS.
