Sustainability is in our DNA


It is not enough to prepare you for the future, we must prepare the world for the future too. That’s why at Prescott College, sustainability isn’t just another buzzword: it’s our call to action, our badge of honor, and our way of life. Born into our very DNA, we place the highest value on social and environmental justice. It’s up to all of us, students and staff alike, to pick up the mantle of stewardship, raise awareness, and take action. From curricula that trains us to be global citizens to campus buildings that are LEED certified, from faculty-led international disaster relief efforts to student-led events promoting local initiatives, we are proud to come together to lead the charge for a more sustainable future.
