Creating a More Sustainable Campus

Since its founding in 1969, Ramapo College of New Jersey has had a clear commitment to sustainability.  As the world around us has come to realize the importance of renewable energy, pollution control, the elimination of waste and the adoption of “green practices”, we have renewed our commitment to sustainability.

With the opening of Ramapo College’s Sharp Sustainability Education Center, the recent approval of our Strategic Plan establishing sustainability as a fundamental principle, and the signing of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, Ramapo College continues to dedicate itself to creating a more sustainable campus.
