Climate change continues to be a primary global concern. 在mg冰球突破豪华版下载, we’ve made incorporating sustainability into the campus 和 improving our energy efficiency a strategic focus.

A major driver of this effort has been the creation of the Sustainability Committee, 一群精力充沛的教员, 工作人员, 和 students who advise the College on environmental, 财政, 和 social sustainability initiatives while providing sustainable feedback 和 support on major capital projects 和 collegiate decisions.

At EC, students are helping drive sustainability initiatives for the College. To support engagement, we developed a 可持续性奖学金 然后选了四个 可持续性的领导人 -每个班一名学生. With the campus as a canvas for their ideas, the students design meaningful projects to implement 和 take the lead in figuring out how to accomplish their goals.
