Sustainability & Service and Learning  

Student volunteerism in sustainability projects on campus is important in getting the 'work' of sustainable operations done while offering students practical experience. Whether it's helping first-year students moving into the dorms recycle their cardboard, planting trees on campus, brainstorming educational campaigns on energy conservation, or conducting surveys to help us improve sustainability systems on campus, students can gain from using the campus as a classroom.
