Sustainability is central to ESF’s mission of providing unique and impactful teaching, research, engagement and action- oriented programs that foster sustainable communities and environments.
As a College, we foster an environment that empowers members of the campus community to take individual actions to spark necessary change, but more importantly, we prioritize creating the ability to work toward large-scale, social change. This system change is needed so we may collectively work to improve our world to meet the needs of current and future generations.

We honor the Confederacy for its many contributions, including the original philosophy and practice of environmental stewardship.
