Located in Northern New York, St. Lawrence University is a diverse liberal arts learning community of inspiring faculty, serious students and accomplished graduates guided by tradition and focused on the future. Upon signing the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, St. Lawrence University has agreed to operate on a minimum of 15 percent renewable electricity. "If the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment did not exist, St. Lawrence would be motivated, nevertheless, to advance the goals of sustainability. It’s highly significant that the University is buying 15 percent of its electricity from renewable energy resources. Insofar as it is feasible, I foresee that giant step as the first of many to come," said President William L. Fox in one of his first public statements as St. Lawrence's 18th president.
