Students Learn It, Live It, and Lead in Sustainability at UMass Amherst!



UMass Amherst has one of the top sustainability programs in the nation!  We are one of the very few schools to reach STARS Gold, win the Second Nature Climate Leadership Award, and be named to the Princeton Review Green Schools Honor Roll. In 2015 we were named to the Mother Nature Network’s list of 17 “amazing green college campuses.”  Watch this short video about our sustainability initiatives on campus:
