The “Sustainable” Advantage
Colleges and universities are leading the way when it comes to cleaning up the planet and improving our society. Green Mountain College has been in the vanguard of change since 1995.
We have a recycling crew; we compost dining hall waste; we’re constantly looking for ways to conserve energy. But we take our commitment further. GMC is different from most colleges because we infuse environmental and social awareness into every aspect of a liberal arts education. We call it the Sustainable Liberal Arts for Transformative Education Curriculum. It’s field-based, interdisciplinary and service-oriented, and it produces engaged citizens ready to tackle complicated, multi-faceted issues. You’ll learn how to analyze problems from multiple perspectives by engaging in the world, asking questions, and making intellectual connections.
