The following mission statement was developed by the Sustainability Advisory Committee to address the commitment of LVC to environmental sustainability:

As a learning institution, Lebanon Valley College embraces the goal of environmental sustainability and commits itself to efforts that will ensure sustainability for our local and global community. To this end, the College, with the direct support of the Sustainability Advisory Committee, will work to:

  • Facilitate the establishment of academic courses and other curricular and co-curricular programs related to environmental sustainability.
  • Offer advice and have a seat at the table regarding the planning and implementation of environmentally sustainable practices in our facilities, operations, and capital projects, and in the campus master planning process.
  • Work to raise the environmental and sustainability awareness of all members of the campus community through curriculum, programs, special events and initiatives, and through the collection, analysis, and dissemination of information on the College's energy and resource use and overall carbon footprint.
  • Foster environmental stewardship and encourage responsible consumption.
