Preserve, maintain, and improve this special place our students call home

 

Allow our students to live and study in a beautiful environment that will leave a lasting impression

Wheaton is committed to enhancing the campus environment and infrastructure to meet students’ needs and to support the innovative and high-quality curricular and co-curricular programs that shape their experiences. Many improvements have been made as the evolution of the campus environment remains one of the pillars of the Strategic Plan.

 

As a Wheaton Fund donor you support campus and student-led efforts to reduce our carbon footprint

Most recent initiatives include a 10-acre solar farm on Wheaton’s Clapp Street parcel and rooftop solar panels on the old science center and the Haas Athletic Center installed in 2016–17. The farm alone provides enough electricity to power 4,650 homes and has the impact of reducing carbon emissions equivalent to taking 500 vehicles off the road.
