Green Initiatives

"Lynchburg College has a core institutional value of 'sustainability' and is therefore committed to educating its community on the obligation of promoting and modeling a sustainable environment." - President Kenneth R. Garren

PlantingFrom student activism in the Green Thumb Alliance to the efforts of individual College departments, Lynchburg College is no stranger to going green. Our commitment grows stronger every year and continues to grow with our massive undertaking of $4.65 million in energy upgrades.

Our College community doesn't just educate students with our Environmental Science and Environmental Studies majors; we take action!

Our Climate Commitment

We take our responsibility to the environment seriously. That's why our president joined the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment to ensure that our commitment becomes action.

The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education has studied our emissions so we can measure ourselves to truly make the difference. Our commitment is exemplified by all of our campus efforts and our energy upgrade project.
