“As a leading higher education institution that is part of a coastal community, Endicott continues to differentiate itself through its sustainability programs and initiatives focused on climate and health,” says Anthony Michetti, director of sustainability at Endicott, which has been recognized as one of Princeton Review’s “green colleges.” “Earth Day provides a great opportunity to engage our community and help educate individuals who can all play a role in building a more sustainable region and globe.”
