Hamilton Affirms Its Climate Commitment
Hamilton College has been a leader in environmental stewardship of its campus for many years and regularly demonstrates its commitment to achieving progress toward climate neutrality. In 2007, Hamilton joined the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment and subsequently developed a Climate Action Plan. The plan is updated annually and continues to guide the College’s sustainability efforts and education.
This summer, Hamilton is installing a 12-acre solar array as further evidence of its commitment to achieve carbon neutrality. Additional information about the College’s sustainability efforts is available in its most recent Climate Action Plan.
Sustaining an Interest in the Environment
Emma Karsten ’18 and Olivia Shehan ’18 are staying close to campus this summer as they intern for Brian Hansen, Hamilton’s director of environmental protection safety and sustainability. The two are also working with Physical Plant’s grounds committee.
