Sustainability Subcommittee STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

Our Committee is made up of engaged students dedicated to furthering environmentally sustainable practices and policies on campus and throughout the community.

Some of the programs the subcommittee has successfully implemented include the following:

  • Creation of several large, well-marked receptacles for easier recycling across campus. A Technotrash, or e-waste recycling program, has also been implemented.
  • Establishment of a commuter route between Montpelier and the law school using Stagecoach Transportation Service’s local shuttle bus.
  • Installation of a solar-powered charging station for electric cars.
  • Establishment of a composting program designed to deal with much of the waste generated on campus, including all cafeteria food waste.
