About W&M Sustainability

W&M Sustainability empowers the campus community to make wise and meaningful decisions toward a flourishing world by thinking long term and inclusively. We connect areas and disciplines around commonalities to the benefit of the environment, society and economy through the teaching, learning and research of students, faculty and staff. Through guiding the university direction of sustainability, we improve both its internal strength as a higher education institution and external weight toward a more sustainable world.
