Resources

There are many ways people can make sustainable changes in their lives. Even making small changes to everyday habits can can have a great impact. 

Our Green Guide is designed to give first years and transfer students an introduction to the sustainability, with an overview of Skidmore's resources and tips for living on- and off-campus.

Skidmore's Forum Bee is a platform for faculty, staff, and students to connect about housing, carpooling, and more. For students there is also a Facebook Rideshare page to carpool, especially at move-in and around holiday breaks.

The Environmental Justice Study Guide provides resources, videos, articles, webpages and more, for folks to take a self-guided study of national and local environmental justice issues, such as pipelines, landfills, and pollution. 

Our Sustainable Workplace Operations Program (SWOP) for staff and faculty is posted under the "Get Involved" section and linked here.

Visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page for more specific questions and answers or email sustainability@skidmore.edu.

Help Helpful Managing natural resources sustainably means only consuming your "fair share" of resources and producing your "fair share" of waste. Your ecological footprint is the amount of land that it takes to produce the resources you consume and absorb the waste you produce. We live on a finite planet with over six billion people. In the long term, our current behavior is clearly unsustainable. Read more about why sustainability matters.
