Inclusive Sustainability

We are all in this together.

Environmental injustice occurs as a result of the marginalization, segregation, and isolation of communities. To achieve environmental and social justice, Amherst addresses discrimination and promotes equality by actively fostering a culture of inclusiveness, an important component of creating an equitable and socially just campus and society.

What’s Next

  • Pursuing more ESG investing within Amherst College’s endowment.
  • Continuing to increase and support diversity among faculty, staff, and the student body.
  • Fostering more meaningful relations and interactions with our local community.
  • Working to ensure campus employees receive a living and just wage.
