Ithaca College has made a number of commitments at the institution level to ensure that our graduates are prepared with the persistence, knowledge, and innovation required to deal with today's climate and social challenges.
Climate Action Plan
In the fall of 2009, the Board of Trustees approved the Ithaca College Climate Action Plan - a comprehensive proposal for the College to reach climate neutrality. It established our goal of 2050 and serves as a framework for organization and benchmarking tools today. The Plan calls for transparency in development and implementation and requires frequent progress reports. In 2017, a Climate Action Plan Reassessment Team was formed to evaluate progress made from 2009 to present. In 2019, the Team completed the new Energy Roadmap and proposed an expedited 2030 carbon neutrality date.
