Sustainability at Beloit College
Beloit College is strongly committed to engaging in sustainability activities:
The Beloit College Revolving Loan Fund (BCRLF), also called the Sustainability Project Fund, provides initial capital for environmentally friendly projects. Some of the savings generated by these projects are returned to the fund for future investments. The Human Resources building was insulated in the fall of 2010 with help from the Fund.
The Sustainability Fellows Program gives students the opportunity to contribute their expertise to a sustainability project on campus or in the Beloit community.
The Campus Sustainability Map provides information many sustainability-related activities on the Beloit campus.
Beloit College President Scott Bierman is committed to sustainability:
"I strongly support the current and future sustainable activities on campus. I believe that there are both economic and educational reasons for enhancing efforts to identify sustainability projects. Of particular interest are projects that meet reasonable cost-benefit tests; curricular opportunities that introduce environmental issues into courses in a variety of disciplines; and research projects that expand our understanding of the complex interplay between environmental systems and environmental policy."
