At Gettysburg College, sustainability isn't limited to the ES Department. It's a campus-wide commitment.
Numerous student groups focus on the environment and our place in it. A few examples include:
- The Gettysburg Environmental Concerns Organization, active on campus for more than 20 years
- Food Justice initiatives such as The Farmhouse, a residence shared by students who are committed to sustainability and social justice
- The Painted Turtle Farm, established by the ES Department as a student-run organic community garden in 2006, is now administered by the Center for Public Service as a community-outreach program.
- Campus Kitchens, a student-initiated program to reduce food waste
The College is a charter signatory of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, and has made major investments in energy efficiency.
