How Students, Faculty, and Staff Can Get Involved


There are many opportunities for students to get involved in sustainability at Skidmore. Sustainable Skidmore offers both paid and volunteer positions in areas of conservation, waste reduction and management, education and outreach and transportation, among others. Our programs are great for building leadership and job skills, and since many are student-led, they are always a great way to meet new friends. Please visit our programs page for more information.

Sustainability Living-Learning

The "Gardenside" program is a sustainability focused living and learning community. First proposed by a Sustainability intern, the program was developed into a partnership between the Office of Sustainability and ResLife. Students interested in sustainability live together in Wiecking Hall (next to the Community Garden) and take a hands-on class, focused on campus and personal sustainability.

Green Grant

The Green Grant is a $10,000 competitive grant managed by the Sustainability Commission in collaboration with the Sustainability Office to support students in pursuing sustainable initiatives on campus to improve student life and the environment.
