At Knox College, we are committed to creating and nurturing a culture of sustainability.  To us, such a culture includes:

  • Recognition that humans are part of nature and need to live in balance with Earth’s ecosystems.
  • Reduced consumption of natural resources to a replenishable rate.
  • Reduced generation of waste to a rate at which the environment can assimilate it.
  • Decision-making that gives equal weight to natural, social, and economic systems.
  • Commitment to place, including conservation and equity in distribution of local resources.

Stay tuned to learn about the strides we are taking towards realizing this ideal.
