At Lenoir-Rhyne, we recognizes that the university is but one component of larger interconnected communities, each of which is impacted by personal and institutional choices.

In order to foster understanding of and responsibility for these human and natural communities, the university encourages education and community outreach that provide students with knowledge and skills to conserve natural resources and to be environmentally responsible citizens.

Lenoir-Rhyne endeavors to be a model of environmental stewardship by promoting care and concern for the environment in the daily lives of individuals and by striving for sustainability in our institutional operations.
