Christopher Newport is building a more sustainable campus by:

  1. Designing and implementing sustainable operations and processes
  2. Educating for sustainability
  3. Cultivating sustainable communities

These represent our Three Sails of Sustainability. Sustainability efforts require stakeholders across campus to work together to assess how we do things and to make better, more sustainable choices. You can learn more about our progress in each area below.

The Office for Sustainability and Center for Sustainability in Education serve to support these efforts and to provide resources to move our campus toward our sustainability goals. We promote sustainability defined as: “the ability for ecological and social systems to thrive together in perpetuity.”
