Get Involved – For Faculty and Staff

Bates offers several ways for faculty and staff to get involved – from learning more about everyday sustainable practices to championing your office as a greener workplace. We invite you to explore the opportunities to adopt more environmental behaviors on campus.

Green Office Certification program

The Green Office Checklist challenges departments to commit to sustainable policies and practices, and then pass their challenge along to others. 


Committee on Environmental Responsibility

The CER represents a cross section of Bates faculty, staff, and students dedicated to making Bates more sustainable. Through research and discussion, the CER raises awareness about sustainability issues and promotes efficiency, sustainable practices and conservation policies.
