Sustainability

The role of the Sustainability Committee is dedicated to building a sustainable campus, keeping in mind the three pillars of equity, economy, and environment. We envision and work towards a world where our practices and actions make responsible use of resources to uplift one another. We help orient ASWC projects towards healthy development for a broad, inclusive Whitman community. We recognize and address the intersections of social justice and environmentalism by advocating for mindful policies through ASWC and the Whitman Administration.

To all the lovely and amazing Whitman community members,

ASWC Sustainability Committee has drafted new Sustainability Principles to be proposed for the school! These will be a revision to the College’s current principles, originally written in 2009. These principles attempt to be fully inclusive of every facet of the Whitman community, so WE NEED YOUR VOICE!!!

We will be holding weekly virtual feedback workshops  Thursdays at 7pm. These will be open to every faculty member, staff, and student. The next three will take place on 4/15, 4/22 and 4/29 — to join please use this link!

You can view the CURRENT Environmental Principles (ratified in 2009). Find the NEW Sustainability Principles (still in draft form) here.

To give ANONYMOUS feedback, use this form. 

Feel free to email the committee at aswcsustainability@lists.whitman.edu or email Sam Kinzel (ASWC Sustainability Chair) at aswc_sustainability@whitman.edu.

We hope to see you at this week’s workshop or one in the future,

ASWC Sustainability Committee :)
