About Us

From grassroots student activism to administrative policies that reduce our environmental impact, the Pomona College community believes in doing our part to create a better world.

Pomona College wrestles with environmental problems as a community, and we dedicate ourselves to living and teaching sustainable philosophies and practices. While we've been named a sustainability leader in higher education, there's still much we can do.

The Sustainability Office develops, coordinates and assesses sustainability efforts throughout Pomona College.

We advise on building and development programs, conduct off-campus outreach about college sustainability projects and collaborate with the Board of Trustees and College executive staff on long-term sustainability planning. We also sponsor programs like Green Bikes, the ReCoop used dorm items sale, the Green Office Program, and the sustainable equipment checkout program, among many others.

Where to Find Us

We are located in the lower level of Harwood Court, with the entrance facing the east walkway between Harwood Court and Mudd Residence Hall. 

Student Assistants

Every semester and summer, the Sustainability Office hires students to work on outreach for events and programs, the development of projects, and general assistance with sustainability efforts.
