At the root of sustainability is “sustain”

JMU President Linwood Rose writes that the importance of sustainability efforts makes it imperative that we go beyond superficial responses if we intend to contribute to a better future. That is why in appointing the Commission on Environmental Sustainability he emphasized that sustainability must be sustained. JMU intends to take a “long-term and thorough approach” to sustainability efforts and their implications on campus and beyond.

The commission recommended the establishment of our new Institute for Stewardship of the Natural World as the first step in living and operating sustainably.
