While the term “sustainability” can take on many meanings we will use the phrase coined by the World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED, but more commonly referred to as the Brundtland Commission).   This defines sustainability as development that "...meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" (WCED, 1987.)  Elaborating on this, in promoting a sustainable society we will emphasize economic vitality, environmental sensitivity, social responsibility, and community preservation with local control. 

As we move toward sustainability we will look inward and work toward sustainability at the College, further sustainability within the region, and, in the process, help to strengthen the bonds between Bridgewater State College and the larger industrial and social community that it serves.
