The environmental committee, made up of elected and appointed faculty, staff, and students from across the campus, engages the entire community in environmental and sustainability issues. The environmental committee is an advisory body and action committee to the President and the community at large. Its responsibilities include the following:
Climate Action Plan (CAP): Hampshire College is part of the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment. Our CAP includes a clear set of guidelines and goals to make the campus climate neutral by 2011. The Draft Climate Action Plan is currently under review by the campus.
The Sustainability Revolving Fund (SURF): The Hampshire College SURF provides loans for campus improvement projects that benefit Hampshire's sustainability by improving efficiency and conserving resources. The SURF exists to foster student, staff, and faculty involvement in increasing environmental, social, and fiscal sustainability at Hampshire College. If you are interested in proposing a project for funding, please see the SURF application, which details the process for project submission and approval.
