As you know, The College of Staten Island is transitioning to distance learning for students and to telecommuting and/or flexible working arrangements for its staff. Consequently, the Office of Sustainable Community Planning is adjusting our current business practices to provide essential services to students, faculty, staff and members of the community.

Welcome to the College of Staten Island’s Sustainability website, home to sustainability efforts on campus. The College of Staten Island is committed to its efforts to protect the environment and develop sustainable patterns of development on its 204 acre campus. Through various initiatives, the College is committed to creating a “greener” campus that is mindful of how conservation can improve its future. CSI is currently focusing on sustainability in these areas and planning to expand on these areas in the future: Water, Energy, Transportation, Recycling, Compost and Trash.

Our mission is to hold ourselves at the highest standard of conservation and sustainability. With the implementation of this plan we will become a model for other institutions as well as for our surrounding communities. Please explore our website for various sustainability initiatives.
