Read or listen to Tuesday’s VPR commentary by Martha Molnar about how Green Mountain College is contributing to the state of Vermont’s reputation as a leader in sustainable living.
“We’re known–justifiably–as a ‘green’ state, one focused on renewable energy, small-scale agriculture, and our rare working landscape. In my own community, one of the contributors to this effort is Green Mountain College, led by its president, Paul Fonteyn, who’s retiring at the end of this academic year. For eight years, Dr. Fonteyn has led the college in transforming a lofty vision into reality. The goal was to create a culture and curriculum centered on sustainability, and Dr. Fonteyn has implemented it with remarkable success.”
