We’re working to cut global warming emissions, integrate sustainability into the curriculum, and cultivate solutions to ensure a healthier environmental future. Exploring sustainable living on campus prepares students for a life of environmental citizenship. Students, faculty, and staff interact with components like LEED-certified buildings and the college farm that make the Lafayette campus a living laboratory.
Our sustainability efforts are focused on 5 main topics; biodiversity, waste & reuse, food loop, energy, and education. Sustainability at Lafayette is a multifaceted issue that requires overlap and collaboration between many different areas of campus. Together we can reduce our carbon footprint and achieve a more sustainable Lafayette.
