Each Earth Day, GC students and employees gather to plant trees to maintain the college’s Tree Campus USA designation.

Goshen College has received a contribution that will help support the college’s environmental commitments.

This anonymous commitment, totaling $50,000 annually, will fund climate initiatives at GC and is earmarked for two key areas:

  • Study-Service Term (SST): A $25,000 annual commitment to support climate awareness and education during each SST unit. This includes funding for carbon offsets matching the calculated carbon footprint of travel and lodging for domestic as well as international units, as well as engaging various leaders to speak to students on climate impacts and strategies.
  • Climate Leadership Initiative: An additional $25,000 per year to fuel a broader climate leadership initiative at Goshen College. This initiative seeks to explore innovative approaches to higher education, fostering the leadership necessary to address global climate challenges.

This gift reflects a shared vision for the role of education in creating informed and responsible global citizens capable of addressing the challenges of climate change and sustainability. […]
