Established in 1970, the student-powered Environmental Center has evolved its leadership from advocacy to launching cutting edge techniques to expanding partnerships with campus and community organizations and, increasingly, to an innovative focus on student engagement. Our mission is to catalyze and facilitate sustainability culture and practices for the campus. Striving for environmental conservation, social equity and economic vitality, the Environmental Center’s continuing purpose is to:
- Innovate: The EC fosters entrepreneurship opportunities for students, staff, and the campus.
- Educate: The EC offers educational and applied learning opportunities for the campus and community.
- Empower: The EC drives student leadership, engagement, and inclusion with increasing alignment with and service to underrepresented students and groups.
- Collaborate: The EC cultivates sustainability by coordinating programs and services with campus and community partners.
