Dickinson will invite students back for the spring. Campus buildings are closed and face coverings are required on campus.
Dickinson launched its sustainability initiative in 2008, and the multifaceted movement has been a defining trait of the college ever since. To document progress over the years, the Center for Sustainability Education began publishing its Sustainability Report in 2015. Now the fourth version of the report is out, detailing advancements made across the 2019-20 calendar years.
Among the highlights are Dickinson's cutting carbon and other climate-changing greenhouse gases to zero—becoming one of the first 10 carbon-neutral colleges in the nation—and being ranked No. 2 in the nation in sustainability performance among four-year colleges by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.
But of course the accomplishments don’t stop there, so read the full report to see the full picture.
