1998 Statement of Environmental Goals
In an attempt to move from the general to more specific, the PSGEC also presented a Statement of Environmental Goals which was passed by the Staff Forum on January 29, 1998. They read:
- We will strive within the limits of practical considerations to conserve energy and resources, reduce waste, purchase environmentally friendly products, and minimize our adverse impact on the surrounding environment.
- We will recognize and promote efforts to increase a deep, aesthetic, spiritually-based awareness of our connection to the environment among the members of this and the larger community.
- We will promote sound environmental citizenship by consciously supporting programs and behaviors that display a willingness to sacrifice personal interests and conveniences for a larger ecological integrity.
- We will promote sound institutional practices which balance environmental concerns with the long-term well-being of the college.
