Sustainability: Operations

Wells College's commitment to sustainable decision making carries over into the ways in which we live and work.

The Center for Sustainability and the Environment works with operational units across campus to further develop the campus as a "living-learning laboratory" that reinforces and models the principles and practices of sustainability that students learn in their coursework. The Center collaborates with entities off-campus to share best practices for more sustainable operations and serves as a conduit for student projects and internships utilizing the ways in which the campus runs as "real world" learning tools. Wells offers "place-based" opportunities for students to experience what it means to live and work more sustainably.

Here are some of our successes to date:

Wells College Climate Action Plan

Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory

Wells College Climate Leadership Commitment

Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (STARS)




Our mission is for every student to think critically, reason wisely and act humanely as they cultivate meaningful lives. On our beautiful lakeside campus, students gain the knowledge, skills and experience to create their own unique path.
