Sustainability means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
MxCC strives to lead the sustainability efforts of the region through modeling sustainable practices and educating students and the community about conservation and environmental stewardship. In April 2012, MxCC President Anna Wasescha signed the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). The President’s Climate Action Response Team (PCART) was formed to address the reporting requirements of this commitment. With input and support from the college and outside community, MxCC’s first climate action plan was completed in February of 2015 and filed with the ACUPCC here.
We are incorporating sustainability initiatives into every aspect of the college, including daily operations, curriculum, student life, and community outreach.
MxCC received a Special Merit Award from the Connecticut River Coastal Conservation District for our efforts in sustainability and educating our community on related environmental issues!
