Sustainable Hampshire

A generous $1 million gift from Gary Hirshberg 72F, co-founder and Chairman of Stonyfield Farm, is designed to help Hampshire integrate its farm, food, operations, and curriculum, and build a culture of sustainability.

Hampshire will capitalize on the creativity, entrepreneurship, and commitment to social justice that have always characterized the Hampshire community.

The Sustainability Initiative will focus on four key transitions. Building upon Hampshire College's strong foundation of innovative research, forward-thinking decision-making, environmental action and awareness, Hampshire will focus on transitions in healthy food systems, campus operations, creative curriculum, and campus culture. 

Our work on these four key transitions will be guided by the Sustainability Transition Advisory Committee (STAC), which will oversee and organize the transition process.
