Ursinus College: Office of Sustainability

About Ursinus College: Office of Sustainability

The Ursinus College Office of Sustainability facilitates the integration of environmental stewardship at Ursinus College and within local communities, on a foundation of social equity and economic viability. To achieve that mission, the Office of Sustainability works with faculty, staff, administrators and community partners, but foremost, the Office of Sustainability provides opportunities for students to be thoughtful, responsible, creative leaders in their society.

The Office of Sustainability’s goal is to establish Ursinus College as leader in approaches to sustainability in the liberal arts that will integrate disciplines, academic endeavors, campus life, college operations, and community engagement to foster a culture of sustainability. Customarily, the Office of Sustainability promotes lifelong learning, interdisciplinary risk taking, and a vibrant “living laboratory” campus for the immediate Ursinus community and the surrounding region.


Farm Fellow

May 2019 - October 2019 Collegeville, PA
“I really enjoyed the experience of being able to do some really simple work. We often times get caught up as students dealing with work that is so mentally taxing and difficult that we forget that we can forget that physical work is out there. It was very nice to get some time to just relax and get some alone time on the farm. ”
