Stonehill Goes Green

Stonehill Office of Sustainability

Mission

Sustainability at Stonehill College reflects the college mission statement, and fosters critical thinking, free inquiry and the interchange of ideas.

Stonehill aims to promote awareness of environmental issues in our community and around the world through community based learning, educational programs and events, and campus wide initiatives that will encourage environmentally friendly practices among students, faculty and staff.

By integrating the practice of sustainability into everyday life at Stonehill, students and graduates are able to think, act and lead with courage toward the creation of a more just, compassionate and sustainable world.

Stonehill Goes Green

Stonehill Goes Green is a campus-wide initiative to promote environmental sustainability within the Stonehill community through policies and practices including recycling, efficient energy use, and waste reduction.

The council is charged with developing, recommending, and maintaining a series of sustainability goals and improving the effort to reduce Stonehill's carbon footprint. The environmental stewardship council's work has a prominent role in recommending policies and actions, increasing awareness of environmental issues, and disseminating information about ways the Stonehill community can contribute to these efforts.
