Sustainability is an integral part of the culture and daily operations of Dana Hall School. The community is educated, both formally and informally, to be sophisticated consumers of the planet’s resources, and Dana Hall manages its institutional consumption wisely.
Sustainability initiatives are visible on campus and engage and draw upon all parts of the School community. In recognition of the fact that sustainability is a broad concern, Dana Hall collaborates with other schools and the Wellesley community.
Sustainability is a collaborative effort. Dana’s student-led Green Team, Parents’ Association (PA) Sustainability Committee and the Sustainability Council composed of faculty, staff and administrators, work together on various environmental initiatives throughout the year.
The Dana Green Team meets weekly. The Green Teams' 2017-18 goals are: composting in the Dining Hall, reducing school-wide paper usage and starting a textbook exchange.
