Albright College is committed to sustainability as a way of life.

The Committee for Sustainability and Stewardship was created by the President to initiate and support environmental policies, actions and programs at Albright College and to ensure that environmental concerns are considered in all aspects of the College's decision making. Our mission is to determine how to improve energy conservation, address environmental issues on campus and educate students, faculty and staff on the importance of environmental consciousness.

Committee members represent all areas essential to sound environmental decision making, including: faculty from a range of disciplines; staff from key areas including Facilities Services and Operations; Student Affairs, Housing and Residential Learning, Food Service and College Relations; and students representing the Student Government Association, Albright Environmental Campus Outreach (ECO) and other interested student groups.
