Our Four Pillars of Sustainability

Energy

The Solar Energy Field on campus

Jason Liu '17 worked with faculty members Alec McCandless and Jeff Dyreson to research the possibilty of a solar array on campus. The Solar Energy Field (SEF), is due to open in May 2019, will ultimately produce 1 MW, which represents 25 percent of the school's overall electric needs. 

Food

Agricultural Proctors, known as AgProctors, welcome new students with the harvest of the summer during Opening days. 

Water

Science teacher Jeff Dyreson's Environmental Science class works in the outdoor classroom where they are studying and reestablishing the wetland near the forthcoming Solar Energy Field. 

Waste

Guided Environmental Research Projects allow students to pursue a particular environmental topic for further study. Here, a student, who is looking at ways to improve recycling on campus, sorts recyclables.
