This campus-wide initiative strives to infuse sustainability concepts and practices throughout Champlain College by coordinating and promoting best practices within four areas: our institution, academics, operations and culture.
Our staff serves as internal consultants, educators and resource people to the Champlain Community (within and beyond the College). We also collaborate with and support other departments and groups to provide campus programs that enrich the campus experience. Sustain Champlain affects every aspect of life across the campus.
- Institution: We set goals on how to make the college more sustainable. See the awards and recognition Champlain has won thanks to our policies, goals and targets. See how we're doing by reading our annual reports.
- Operations: We promote practices for buildings, energy, transportation, waste, water, grounds and dining. See our map of our best practices on campus.
- Academics: We create faculty development opportunities and identify areas for integration within existing curriculum. Learn more here.
- Culture: We support and coordinate related groups, communicate with the campus community, and host events and activities.
