“Fulfillment happens not in retreat from the world, but in advance–and profound engagement.”
Bergen Community College is committed to policies and logistics that balance human health, economic viability, and ecosystem stability. The campus is both a laboratory and a classroom, creating an environment where students can get involved with the learning process of sustainability through “hands-on projects” happening around campus. Please use this site as a networking and educational page.
Sustainability on campus happens via the following avenues:
- Policies that incorporate sustainability into purchasing, facilities infrastructure, strategies/mission, and logistical frameworks (e.g. paperless communications)
- A framework that focuses on systems and operations that integrate sustainability where feasible
- Networks that combine the efforts of administrators, faculty, staff, students, and community members.Through groups such as the Sustainable Learning Committee and sustainability seminars, we create engagement opportunities to share knowledge, skills, and foster collaboration
- Integrate the principles of sustainability into the academic life of the college
