Sustainability and Catholic Higher Education: A Toolkit for Integration

I am pleased to share with you, Sustainability and Catholic Higher Education: A Toolkit for Integration, which AJCU has recently published with the USCCB-endorsed Catholic Coalition on Climate Change; Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities; Association of Franciscan Colleges and Universities; and the Catholic Campus Ministry Association, with the help of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.

This Toolkit is designed around the USCCB-endorsed St. Francis Pledge to Care for Creation and the Poor and is intended to help Catholic colleges and universities strengthen their sustainability efforts and commitment to Catholic identity through mission-based sustainability. Please click on this link to download the toolkit and learn more about the Catholic Coalition on Climate Change.

Please encourage administrators, faculty and staff of the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities of the United States to promote and share the information from this Toolkit on their respective campuses. If you have any questions about this, please contact Dan Misleh, Executive Director of the Catholic Coalition on Climate Change, at or (301) 322-1180.
