The Sustainability Committee is comprised of student leaders, faculty, and administrators from plant operations to dining services who meet monthly to advise decision makers, discuss initiatives, and collaborate with other environmentally-committed groups. It aims to educate Lafayette and the Lehigh Valley community to make choices that will enable us to become better stewards of our planet.

How to get involved: The committee meets each month from 12:00 to 1:00 over lunch. Please email sustainability@lafayette.edu to be added to our email list.

Fall 2019 dates: September 18th, October 23rd, November 6th, and December 4th. All meetings will be held in the Marlo Room.
