Statement of Purpose

Young Harris College will incorporate sustainable issues into the curriculum of the college, promote sustainable economic and business practices within campus daily processes and support community sustainable endeavors while advocating that meeting the needs of the college is fairly and justly accomplished inside all social parameters.

This statement of purpose flows naturally out of the College’s larger mission to “educate, inspire and empower.” One specific way in which this is accomplished is by fostering leadership among its students, faculty and staff that is dedicated to creating a sustainable, just and caring society.

Excerpted fom the YHC Sustainability Strategic Plan: “Learning to Think and Act Sustainably” prepared by Associate Professor of Biology Brenda K. Hull.
