Bethany College deepens commitment to sustainability

Bethany College has recently become a member of the Association of the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) to further campus efforts toward building a healthy environment. Through membership in AASHE, Bethany will receive support in advancing its sustainability initiatives throughout the college and in the community.

“By becoming a member of AASHE, Bethany is joining an extensive network of partners to inspire and inform our sustainability efforts on campus. This institutional membership strongly supports Bethany’s core value commitment to sustainability and the work of our Green Team,” said Green Team Organizer and Campus Pastor Noni Strand.

AASHE enables higher education institutions to meet their sustainability goals by providing specialized resources, professional development and a network of peer support. Membership covers every individual at an institution, so the entire campus community can take advantage of member benefits.

“We are delighted to have Bethany College on board and participating in the campus sustainability community,” said Paul Rowland, executive director of AASHE. “This shows a real commitment to playing a leadership role in some of the biggest challenges of our time, and provides the campus community with access to thousands of examples of best practices in campus sustainability.”

AASHE is an association of colleges and universities that are working to create a sustainable future. Its mission is to empower higher education to lead the sustainability transformation. It does this by providing resources, professional development, and a network of support to enable institutions of higher education to model and advance sustainability in everything they do, from governance and operations to education and research.
