At Clarkson, we defy convention. We understand that creating a sustainable global environment requires us to step outside traditional disciplines and work together. That's why we created the Clarkson Institute for a Sustainable Environment. It's interdisciplinary. It's innovative. It's inspiring.

The institute is making things happen—things like improving the purity of the St. Lawrence River, converting dairy manure into biogas, and creating a cleaner snowmobile. We're also practicing what we preach by reducing our environmental footprint. We're recycling everything from fluorescent bulbs to bubble wrap, pursuing LEED Silver certification on all new construction, and adding hybrids, electric vehicles, and bicycles to our campus fleet.

We’re proud to be at the forefront of intelligent resource use, both on campus and around the globe.

Should we spend your Clarkson Fund contribution on sustainability? It's your choice.
