Coalesce is an Accelerator for campuses who aspire to build cohesive and enduring campus sustainability initiatives. Our mission is to transform campus communities into hubs for scaling sustainable development through demonstration, education, and collaboration.

Co (together) Alesce (to grow) means to bring disparate parts together. We believe that today’s complex challenges can be solved through integrated solutions we generate collaboratively.

“Coalesce has secured remarkable cross-campus buy-in through an effective sustainability governance group - including diverse stakeholders, from students to senior leadership. Sustainability is now recognized as a long-term economic and strategic priority for Thayer.”

Bill Stephenson, Business Manager, Thayer Academy
