In the fall of 2008, the president, faculty, and students endorsed a "Commitment to Environmental Stewardship" to represent the official position of the College. With the adoption of this commitment, the Environmental Task Force has been renamed the Committee for a Sustainable Campus.
As an institution of higher learning committed to the liberal arts tradition, we have a fundamental responsibility to educate future leaders for productive lives in a complex global society. The College of Wooster is a community of learners and, as such, we have a unique opportunity to structure our common life within the College in ways that foster informed choices and promote the ideals of sound environmental stewardship. We therefore affirm that the College of Wooster will exemplify efforts to integrate environmental knowledge and values into daily life by conducting our affairs in ways that enhance personal, public, and environmental health.
To this end, we commit to the following steps toward environmental sustainability:
The liberal arts tradition and our own Wooster Ethic both support our efforts to integrate knowledge and values into our daily life. By affirming the foregoing principles, we envision our campus as a laboratory for learning and action which reflects our concern for humankind, our sense of responsibility for the global environment, and our commitment to environmental sustainability, both locally and in the world at large.
