Ithaca College Sustainability



On Jan 24, 2017, we received confirmation from AASHE that our Dec 2016 STARS submission was accepted, and as we shared in late Nov, we are at the SILVER level.  We intentionally chose to benchmark using the more challenging version 2.1, and will use the updated assessment to help further guide our efforts in being a recognized leader in all three pillars of sustainability - social, economic, and environmental.  GOLD is our focus for the next submission.  We look forward to the continued engaged assistance and guidance from the campus community.



Final results are in - 16th (88th percentile) in food organics and 72nd (62nd percentile) in diversion rate.

Congrats to our video contest winners and the $100 gift certificate to Agava Restaurant, Devin McQuillan and Danielle Lee!

Energy Management and Sustainability - An Update from the New Director


At Ithaca College, we have re-framed sustainability as a decision-making framework for continuous improvement. We ask members of our campus community to be mindful about the decisions they make, and to take into consideration the financial, social and environmental impacts of their choices.  Learn how you can make more sustainable decisions.
