Sustainability, a buzzword in the corporate world, in government, and in schools, means securing a healthy and enduring human future through environmental stewardship. At Cannon School, we believe sustainable solutions inherently express our core values: courage, teamwork, respect, integrity, passion, and kindness. It takes courage and passion to change the status quo, as it takes integrity to be respectful of our environmental footprint. Students, faculty, and staff work as a team in various "green" programs around the campus and community not only for their own sake, but also for the character-building lessons environmental stewardship teaches all of us.
Cannon has a dedicated Sustainability Committee comprised of members from the faculty and staff across divisions and disciplines as well as US students. The committee's mission is to improve sustainability on campus and to educate our school community about environmental issues.
