We don’t just teach environmental responsibility at Proctor: we practice it. Students helped write an Environmental Mission Statement
that sets the highest standards of sustainability and carbon neutrality. We leverage student engagement through classes, Project Period and in dorms to find innovative, local solutions to global problems. We manage our own 2500 acre woodlot and student cut, split, stack and eventually heat their dorms with that wood. We capture electrons with solar panels, a project researched and initiated by students. We practice recycling and energy conservation.
Like so many things at Proctor, this is not imposed on students from above; our commitment is grounded in shared values.
