Sustainability

Conservation is an important part of the Assumption College curriculum. Learn your place in the local and global ecosystem, the effects that humans have on the world, how to solve environmental problems and prepare to take action.

Fostering a Sustainable Campus Environment

The College and our students take sustainability seriously. Whether through organizing group events like Recyclemania, taking part in awareness campaigns or just making sound ecological choices, our collective efforts contribute to a campus that does its part to make a meaningful difference. The Reach Out Center and student groups such as Greenhounds and CRS Social Justice Ambassadors provide you with a number of options to put into actions your passion for sustainable practices.
