|About||The Sustainability Institute team fosters informed debate on key issues related to sustainability and works to integrate concepts of sustainability into the curriculum, operations and culture at Molloy College and the larger Long Island community.|
To serve as a core resource on environmental excellence, and to promote positive solutions that advance the three dimensions of sustainability - economy, environment and social equity, for both the students & faculty of Molloy College and for the larger Long Island community of which Molloy is a part.
To catalyze Long Island to become a national leader in developing, promoting, and implementing sustainable solutions to environmental and quality of life challenges.
The Sustainability Institute is a function of the Molloy College Office of Advancement. Its mission is to promote transformative education both on and off campus consistent with the values of advancing the common good, environmental protection, ethical business practices, and civic responsibility, especially in the areas of implementing clean energy, reducing environmental toxins that impact public health, sustainable land use planning that preserves open space, and sustainable use of resources.
The Sustainability Institute provides a convening function at Molloy College that reaches out to Long Island's civic and environmental leaders, business executives, and government officials, bringing representatives of various interests together, in order to identify mutual interest in support of an agenda of a sustainable economy and society.
Through classroom presentations and experiential learning, the Sustainability Institute helps students gain and understanding of how social change is accomplished, while developing their leadership skills to better serve both their future professions and the larger community. The Sustainability Institute acts as a clearing house to guide students who are interested in becoming involved in environmental issues towards student or off-campus organizations, faculty initiated programs and classes.
