We are inspired by:
- The biodiversity of our region and nature’s ability to provide ecosystems that allow all creatures to thrive.
- Natural examples of mutually beneficial relationships and resource sharing, like the relationship between plants and pollinators or the nutrients passed through the mycorrhizal network.
- The many advocates who champion empathy, social justice, and equality for all people, especially in the context of access to clean water and air, and safe outdoor spaces.
- Nature’s proven physical and mental health benefits.
- The many students who come to Tremont, experience a new model of teaching, and realize that they are creative and capable thinkers and learners.
We aspire to create a lasting legacy of a just, inclusive, and equitable world where every individual’s potential is realized. Our campus will be universally accessible so all people have access to our spaces.
Our methods include:
- Using principles of universal design when considering all built structures and pathways.
- Working with Just-labeled organizations in the design and development of our campus.
- Including diverse stakeholders in the design, construction and operations and maintenance phases of the project.
- Committing to creating an equitable campus culture that uplifts marginalized communities by adjusting our policies, teaching practices, and workplace culture.
