Mission statement

We, the students, faculty, and staff of Saint Michaelís College have become deeply concerned with the threat of climate change, the careless consumption of natural resources, and our College's effect on the environment. Our location in the beautiful and verdant State of Vermont underscores our responsibility to exercise stewardship of our planet.

The Environmental Council will support campus activities and programs that work towards the College's environmental goals. This means fostering an environmentally sustainable campus culture. We will strive towards collaboration among members of the Saint Michael's College community and with residents and institutions in the neighboring towns and cities, with the State of Vermont, and with environmentally oriented institutions elsewhere in the world.

Council objectives

  1. Tracking the campus's use of facilities and land to minimize the College's "ecological footprint."
  2. Recommending policies and processes appropriate to an institution in which environmental responsibility is a top priority.
  3. Supporting specific projects that enhance environmental protection.
  4. Encouraging programs that increase environmental consciousness and literacy among the members of the college and broader communities.
  5. Communicating Saint Michael's Collegeís environmental successes and challenges.
  6. Ensuring the continuity of the environmental movement at Saint Michaelís College
