Sustainability at Allegheny College is a community endeavor that is as much about responsibility as it is about fun. In collaboration with the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment, we've pledged to achieve climate neutrality by the year 2020. To meet this goal we've integrated sustainability principles into budgets, daily operations, job descriptions, purchasing and contract policies, and our Strategic Plan. Students explore and advance sustainability in interdisciplinary curriculum; innovative research such as aquaponics and wind feasibility studies; collaborations with the City of Meadville and local schools; and extracurricular activities such as the annual October Energy Challenge and the Trashion Show.
