鶹ֱ

At 鶹ֱ, sustainability means providing high-quality applied education and training that meets the needs of students, employees, and the communities in which we operate today, while protecting and enhancing the human and natural resources that will be needed in the future.

As a postsecondary institution, 鶹ֱ first made sustainability a key strategic priority in 2009 and has identified with the importance of reducing impacts on the environment. 鶹ֱ’s definition of sustainability is based on the Bruntland Commission report, created by the United Nations (UN), Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development: Our Common Future.
