In short, sustainability is defined as the capacity to endure. However, in today's rapidly shifting world, sustainability has grown into a much broader movement at Fisher and within the entire community of higher education. Sustainability has been called the "ultimate liberal art," because it reaches across the spectrum of education and invites students to think outside the box. At Fisher College, sustainability highlights the intersection of three vital life domains: the economy, the environment, and society. The environmental movement, like most great American revolutions, was born on college campuses. Four decades later, grass roots student efforts remain at the forefront of Fisher sustainability. The Common Good club was the impetus for the college's newfound commitment to Going Green. EcoMotion, a California-based environmental firm, is working directly with Fisher's administration to craft and implement a comprehensive sustainability program. First by laying the foundation, EcoMotion and Fisher's Sustainability Committee are raising the green bar and setting a sustainable precedent for years to come.
