About Us

At Earlham, sustainability is a vibrant focus of community life that is integrated across the campus. Internships, project grants, events, courses and organizations are just some of the many ways students are invited to engage with sustainability. From making the campus a sustainable place to live and learn, to studying sustainability through the lenses of the environment and social justice, sustainability at Earlham is a key part of the transformative education we pride ourselves upon.

The Sustainability Office is located on the first floor of the Landrum Bolling Center in the Center for Integrated Learning.
