Student-Run Sustainability Program

The student-run Sustainability Program, formerly known as the Recycling Program, began in 1999 through the efforts of two environmental studies majors. The program mission has evolved over the years into promoting single-stream recycling, fair trade, a campus bicycle progrm, and other initiatives through their events and daily life! The program mission is to join forces with others on the education of all members of our community on how to live a more sustainable and environmentally friendly life on campus and in the community. 

Mission Statement: The student-run Sustainability Program of Rollins College advocates environmental stewardship and awareness of our effect on the environment to the campus community. Through education and implementation of initiatives that enrich the appreciation for the environment, the program hopes to inspire the campus community to gain an understanding of our environment, to care for it, and to identify our active role within it.

The Sustainability Program strives to work in the institution to promote sustainable practices within Dining Services, Purchasing, and Facilities Management among others. These practices can balance environmental concerns with the long-term well-being of the college.

The student-run Sustainability Program strives to reinforce the awareness of a healthy environment as a top priority of Rollins College through activities on the Rollins campus and in the wider community.
