We incorporate sustainable principles and technologies in the design, construction and maintenance of all campus facilities. We also benchmark sustainability performance.
Education & Outreach
Through environmentally-focused classes and interdisciplinary programs such as Environmental Science and Studies, students benefit from Lafayette faculty with strong environmental expertise.
We are committed to reducing our use of fossil fuel by producing energy from sustainable sources such as wind turbines, solar panels and employing green building practices.
Food & Farm
LaFarm, a three-acre community garden and student farm at Metzgar Fields, serves as a laboratory for student-faculty research. It's the cornerstone of the College's Sustainable Food Loop.
Many faculty members teach courses and conduct research with students on crucial global issues such as ecology and biodiversity, an important factor in the survival of the various species on Earth.
