About Us

Our mission is to educate and empower the next generation of environmental leaders.

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

From grassroots student activism to achieving Carbon Neutrality by 2030, the Pomona College community believes in doing our part to create a better future.

We, the employees at the Sustainability Office, dedicate ourselves to living and teaching sustainable philosophies and practices. While we've been named a sustainability leader in higher education by The Princeton Review Guide to Green Colleges, Menus of Change University Research Collaborative, and many others, there's still much we can do.

We advise on building and development programs, facilitate student-led campus sustainability projects, and collaborate with the Board of Trustees and College executive staff on long-term sustainability planning. We also sponsor programs like EcoReps, Green Bikes, ReCoop (our used dorm items sale), and the sustainable equipment checkout program at our office, among others.

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

Our office is currently closed due to the COVID-19 campus closure. We will re-open in the fall for the Pomona College community. We look forward to seeing the rest of our community once we can all do so safely!

You can find us and other sustainability features (like water bottle refill stations, compost tumblers, and bike fix stations) using the interactive campus map below.
