Colgate takes pride in the distinctive beauty of a campus that has shaped the lives of generations.

Alumni carry a sense of this place with them when they graduate. Their affection for the campus strengthens their ties to our university.

As we look to the century ahead, Colgate must continue to carefully steward our campus environs, which have been a crucial component in the University’s aspiration for excellence.

We will enhance the beauty of campus and improve its infrastructure even as we remain committed to mitigating our impact on the climate and strive to be a model for environmental responsibility.

Together we can preserve our campus’ natural and built environments for future generations while creating a unified, beautiful, sustainable setting that connects and uplifts all members of our Colgate community.
