ACUPCC is the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment. The President of MCC was one of the first signers of the commitment back in 2008. Since then, over 675 colleges and universities across the country have made their commitment.

You can read the text of the commitment here. As part of the commitment, MCC is required to produce and publish several different reports documenting our sustainability efforts, greenhouse gas emissions, emission reduction goals, and progress.

Public reporting is our way to demonstrate to external audiences the seriousness with which we implement our commitment.
