Sustainability means many things to many people. At Lewis & Clark, our approach to sustainability is grounded in our educational mission to cultivate global thinkers and leaders. We build on the best available scholarship and practice—recognizing the importance and interrelatedness of ecology, economy, and equity—to extend our research and actions beyond our campus and into the wider world.
For our efforts, The Princeton Review ranked Lewis & Clark #1 in this year’s list of Top 50 Green Colleges. They used data from their 2013-14 institutional survey, as well as student surveys that asked about each school’s sustainability-related practices, policies, and academic offerings. Results included student ratings of how sustainability issues influenced their education and life on campus, administration and student support for environmental awareness and conservation efforts, and the visibility and impact of student environmental groups.
