Environmental Stewardship means working in harmony with the natural world—making sustainable choices that protect the climate, water, soil and wilderness while ensuring that our food system is healthful and just. It also means fostering those ideals in other people of all ages and backgrounds.
At Sterling College we own this as the essential enterprise: To create with you an innovative education that inspires, challenges, and pushes you to discover your environmental stewardship vision, whether you’re conducting research in the arctic, growing food for yourself and others, drafting clean water legislation for your state, or leading a youth group on a wilderness canoe trip.
We believe this can’t be done in a classroom alone, but needs to happen at the junctures where humanity and nature meet. So get ready to get your hands dirty.
In a world where colleges, like big box stores, look increasingly alike, Sterling is unlike any other school in the nation. Which is why you need to visit.
Breathe the fresh, mountain air on our rural Vermont campus. Watch our draft horses at work and tour our woodlands, greenhouses, classrooms, and studios. Relish a farm-to-table lunch with Sterling faculty and students.
See for yourself that it’s possible to learn in a place where you can live your values. Schedule a visit now. (And wear your work boots.)
