President John E. Jones III announced in February that Dickinson would join 100 other colleges and universities in signing Second Nature’s Climate Leadership Resilience Commitment. This came from a resolution passed in the fall, from faculty that decided Dickinson should join this pledge.
Second Nature is an organization aimed at reducing environmental impacts of higher education. They have three commitments that schools can choose to join: reducing carbon-emissions, becoming carbon-neutral, and working toward climate resilience. Since Dickinson has already reached carbon-neutrality, they have signed the Resilience Commitment.
