St. Thomas infuses sustainability into every aspect of campus life, from academic programs and student activities to facilities and dining operations. We are working as a community toward a goal of carbon neutrality by 2035, which is why St. Thomas’ Board of Trustees approved a university commitment to divest our endowment from fossil fuels.
Our understanding of (and commitment to) sustainability is grounded in our identity as a Catholic university. Our plans embrace the principles of caring for creation, environmental stewardship, and advancing the common good on a shared planet. When it comes to sustainability, The Princeton Review ranks St. Thomas in the Top 50 Green Colleges in America.
