Sustainability Initiative for Hope's Campus
The daily operations of our campus are an important piece in the sustainability efforts at Hope College and with your help, we can reduce our impact on the environment. Highlights of the project include
- Tracking our campus environmental footprint and working on ways to reduce the usage of natural resources.
- Installing energy and water efficiency upgrades in buildings sus as LED bulbs, variable-frequency drives, motion sensor light switches, high-efficiency furnaces and water heaters, water bottle filling stations, and low-flow appliances.
- Fine-tuning our waste streams and collection/hauling services to minimize landfill volume and increase our recycling and composting efforts.

Summer Environmental Internship Fund
Additionally, Hope College has recently established a summer environmental internship fund enabling students to work for environmental advocacy organizations that are often overlooked because positions are unpaid. This new initiative will host its inaugural student in summer 2022!
