Our Mission

The Leslie Miller and Richard Worley Center for the Environment prepares students to think critically, creatively, and globally — to tackle the environmental challenges of the 21st century.

The Center advances a culture of sustainability on campus and beyond as a legacy for future generations.

It builds connections between our campus — a world-class liberal arts college on an exceptional landscape in the heart of western Massachusetts — and learning opportunities around the globe.
