Dickinson has reached its goal of becoming carbon neutral in 2020 and is one of the first 10 colleges or universities in the U.S. to produce zero net emissions of greenhouse gases. And that’s just the latest sustainability milestone set by the college.

“My impression of Dickinson’s sustainability is [it’s] so impressive, so heartfelt, so encouraging,” says actor and environmental activist Pierce Brosnan, who delivered the college's 2019 Commencement address and accepted the Sam Rose ’58 and Julie Walters Prize at Dickinson College for Global Environmental Activism on behalf of the NRDC. “I’m absolutely blown away by the commitment of the students [and] the faculty, to educate, to enlighten to enhance a better world for us all.”
