Sustainability Plan Released

In January, the college’s Sustainability Steering Committee released a three-year Sustainability Plan for Beloit College, a result of the group’s work over nearly 12 months.

Among the goals are efforts aimed at campus and community engagement, a three-tiered project-based set of learning pathways around sustainability for students, and campus operations management that addresses energy and water usage, food waste, recycling, landscaping, transportation, purchasing, and dining services. Progress on the plan will be evaluated by comparing Beloit with colleges and universities worldwide through the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.
