Sustainability Institute

The Sustainability Institute at Molloy College is a function of the Office of Advancement. Its mission is to promote transformative education both on and off campus consistent with values of advancing the common good, environmental ethics, ethical business practices and civic responsibility, especially in the areas of implementing clean energy, reducing environmental toxins, sustainable consumer and food choices, land use planning and the sustainable use of resources.

The Sustainability Institute provides a convening function at Molloy College that reaches out to Long Island's civic and environmental leaders, business executives and government officials, bringing representatives of various interests together, in order to identify mutual interest in support of an agenda of a sustainable economy and society.

Through classroom presentations and experiential learning, the Sustainability Institute helps students gain an understanding of how social change is accomplished, while developing their leadership skills to better serve both their future professions and the larger community. The Sustainability Institute acts as a clearing house to guide students who are interested in becoming involved in environmental issues towards student or off-campus organizations, faculty-initiated programs and classes.
