Mission Statement:
The University of La Verne Campus Sustainability Task Force is committed to supporting the University’s mission statement by promoting proactive, environmentally responsible practices throughout all campus activities.

The task force seeks to raise community-wide awareness and understanding of environmental issues and the responsibilities each person has to help address these issues. The task force will create a framework for ecologically sound, socially and fiscally feasible practices across the campus and will provide encouragement and direction to students, staff, faculty, and the entire campus for the implementation of these practices.

The task force was created in March 2002 with the purpose of educating the University of La Verne community about sustainable practices, assessing the sustainability of the campus as it is now, and suggesting ways to improve conservation and environmentally sound practices across campus. The task force is made up of representatives from across the campus, including many faculty and staff members.

Chair: Prof. Robert Neher
