Strengthening the Mills commitment to sustainability—and, inextricably, social justice—is outlined as an imperative in the Mills College Strategic Plan for 2013-2018. Mills College has a number of sustainability goals it has met or is on track to meet in areas including water conservation and waste reduction. Mills is a signatory of the American College and University Presidents’ Carbon Commitment to minimize our environmental impact, and the College has exceeded its goal of a 15% reduction of 2008 greenhouse gas emissions by 2015.
