UMass Amherst students are leaders in rethinking how to live, learn, travel, and work in new ways to protect our planet. They are the reason UMass ranks among the top sustainable campuses in the US. Recent awards include the 2021 Commonwealth of Massachusetts Leading by Example Award for outstanding clean energy and sustainability achievements in higher education.
UMass Amherst Libraries proudly supports the integration of sustainability principles across the curriculum by providing resources, training, and research opportunities to create a healthier, more livable climate for all.
Please join the Libraries in our effort to reach our goal to raise $25,000 for the Libraries’ Sustainability Fund during UMassGives.

If you make your gift on Friday, April 29, between 2-3 p.m. during the Libraries’ Power Hour you’ll be helping us compete for an additional $2,000 along with groups across campus vying for the most donors during that hour.
