/ Sustainability


GreenHopetableHope’s sustainability efforts happen through the collective involvement and investment of our students, faculty and staff.

Whether you're a staff member or a student, join one of these groups to help us create a more sustainable Hope and world.

Green Team

Our sustainability committee (Green Team) brings together students, faculty and staff from departments and offices around campus. This helps to ensure a wide exposure to new ideas and application of sustainable practices around the college.
