Campus Summary

Green Mountain College

Founded in 1834, Green Mountain College (“GMC”) was a private 4-year liberal arts college focused on environmental, social, and economic sustainability. The college was recognized as a leader in environmental sustainability.  In 2010 the school replaced its HVAC system with a wood-fueled biomass heating system. The biomass system supplies steam heat to the on-campus buildings and today the campus is carbon neutral.  At its peak, GMC enrolled and housed over 600 undergraduate students on the campus.  In January 2019, GMC announced that it would cease operations and close at the conclusion of the 2019 academic year.

Sustainable Campus

In 2007, the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) awarded Green Mountain College the Campus Sustainability Leadership Award. The award recognized GMC for its commitment to environmental sustainability in its governance and administration, curriculum and research, operations, campus culture, and community outreach.  Other recognitions:
