Sustainability Planning in Practice

This year, Vassar College is ungergoing a Master Planning Process to vision what the campus could look and feel like in 2025. Professor Cunningham of the Earth Science & Geography Department and Sustainability Coordinator Alistair Hall are teaching a course this Spring to correspond with this effort, Geography/Urban Studies 280: Sustainability Planning and Practice. 

Students in the class have been reading Sustainability Plans from Colleges across the country and discussing sustainability intiatives and policies in NYC, Germany, and beyond. There are so many ideas out there about how an institution may 'go green,' so one of the goals of the course has been to sift through these examples and create a plan for how they could be applied on the Vassar Campus. 

Check out what the students have come up with thus far on our blog here!
