When President Mark Gearan signed the Climate Commitment earlier this fall, he set Hobart and Williams Smith on a path to becoming a “greener campus.”
This Wednesday, from 2 to 3:30, student groups will present their recommendations for how HWS can and should meet its climate commitment. The students are part of a senior seminar in Environmental Studies and these presentations will cap their research into ways to make HWS greener.

The community is invited to attend all or part of the presentations that will start at 2 p.m. on Dec. 5 in the Sanford Room of the Library. This is the community's chance to hear student opinions and to offer input into the process.
