Windtricity is a green energy program that enables us to purchase power created Our mission to give back to society is coupled with our desire to nurture within our students the importance of community stewardship.  Our future professionals will be well prepared to move forward in their careers with a sense of responsibility and compassion toward the world, and within the world of beauty.
