Sustainability: Outreach

Wells College constantly shares what it means to make more sustainable decisions, both within our campus community and with those outside interested in learning along with us.

The Association for the Advancement for Sustainability in Higher Education recognized Wells' sustainability work with a STARS Silver Rating.

spread the word

The Center for Sustainability and the Environment serves as the hub for programs that engage the college community in co-creating a more sustainable campus environment. The Center works with all communication channels to spread the word – both within the campus community and to others outside – about the necessity for and the methodologies to become more sustainable as individuals and as a learning organization.

Encouraging all members of our campus community to learn to make deliberate, more sustainable decisions can only lead to better outcomes. Campus sustainability should not be viewed as a competitive advantage in higher education – it is an educational and an operational imperative. It is incumbent upon Wells College, as an institution of higher learning, to readily share what we have come to understand and learned how to do with others in the academy and within society at large. Sharing the "whys" and "hows" of developing a resilient, more sustainable future for our faculty, staff and students – and their families – is of paramount importance.
