LVAIC fosters leadership in environmental stewardship and sustainability across our members’ campuses by integrating economic, environmental, and social responsibility into operations, residential life, education and research. Our multi-school approach provides a useful basis for more ambitious collaboration.

Sustainability efforts are currently focused on three of the campuses; DeSales University, Lehigh University and Moravian College. The objectives of these efforts are to assist in developing benchmark data and establishing annual goals, work with campus groups to enhance student involvement in sustainability initiatives, identify and pursue potential external funding sources, and develop and coordinate community outreach efforts. Opportunities to collaborate and interact with the three remaining LVAIC member colleges are also pursued as possibilities arise.
