In an effort to fulfill Goucher's commitment to environmental sustainability, we created an official environmental advisory council,  known as GESAC (Goucher Environmental Sustainability Advisory Council).

This council consists of students, faculty, and staff members, and it advises the president and administration on environmental issues and policies. The council also researches and explores solutions to environmental issues raised by members of the Goucher community and reports its findings to the president.  It helps to implement campus environmental programs and monitors the college's progress in fulfilling the requirements of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment.
