Sustainability on Campus

Harvey Mudd College recognizes sustainability as one of this century’s biggest challenges.

As part of its new strategic vision, “HMC 2020: Envisioning the Future,” the College is reducing the rate at which it contributes to the depletion of natural resources, incorporating concepts of sustainability into its academic and daily affairs and increasing use of renewable resources.

Harvey Mudd has two LEED-certified buildings, a specially appointed Sustainability Committee and numerous faculty members and students involved in environmental research efforts here and abroad. President Maria Klawe is also a signatory on the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment.
