Mission Statement

Founded in 2005, the mission of SUSTAIN is to help build campus-wide community by offering opportunities for people from different areas of the College, especially students, to come together to share ideas, raise awareness, educate ourselves, and coordinate with each other by working on projects and making recommendations for policies and practices to make Central College and the wider world more environmentally sustainable, socially and economically just.
