The Institute for Sustainable Practices works toward realizing Lane's core value of sustainability


  • Integrating practices that support and improve the health of systems that sustain life.
  • Providing an interdisciplinary learning environment that builds understanding of sustainable ecological, social, and economic systems, concern for environmental justice, and the competence to act on such knowledge.
  • Equipping and encouraging all students and staff to participate actively in building a socially diverse, just, and sustainable society, while cultivating connections to local, regional, and global communities.
