The First Report of the Sustainability Committee is meant to share all that has been accomplished and worthy of celebration, while also calling attention to the many tasks that lie ahead.
The Sustainability Committee is a driving force for prioritizing initiatives and helping to guide activities that improve sustainability at Saint Mary’s College. One of these efforts is to take stock, summarize and communicate what is happening on our campus relative to sustainability. Through the preparation of this document we uncovered accomplishments big and small that are making Saint Mary’s a more responsible contributor to the discussion of sustainability. But we also identified a number of areas where we are trailing our peer institutions and best practices in the field.
