Over the past year visitors to Mount Holyoke may have noticed the installation of 10 new signs throughout campus: green in color, green in focus. An initiative led by the Miller Worley Center for the Environment, and rooted in the current strategic plan, the signs help tell the story of the College’s commitment to sustainability — and to preparing the next generation of environmental leaders.

The signs highlight a range of topics, including the Campus Living Laboratory, energy-efficient features of  Kendade Hall, local food initiatives and reduced food waste at the Dining Commons, and environmental internships and research opportunities.

Learn more about the Miller Worley Center for the Environment and ongoing sustainability priorities, including the College’s pledge for carbon neutrality.
