In the summer of 2007, Bridgewater State College became one of the charter signatories of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), a national initiative focused on using the physical and intellectual resources of higher education to fight global warming.
As a signatory, the college joins over 400 other institutions in conducting a comprehensive greenhouse gas inventory, undertaking tangible, short-term efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and developing a long-term plan for campus climate neutrality. This collective effort will draw upon the talent and creativity of every segment of the campus community as the college continues to construct green buildings, support climate-friendly purchasing, and infuse sustainability into its curriculum, scholarship and community.
In September 2007, the President’s office formed a task force to coordinate
these efforts. Updates and announcements relevant to the Climate Commitment
will appear on this site periodically. While the task force will reach out to
the campus community, you are encouraged to contact members with suggestions,
ideas and questions.
