Planet Activism: Students Further Their Environmental Passions through Clubs and Groups
Fernandez, Kim
Community College Journal, v81 n2 p34-36, 38-39 Oct-Nov 2010
Community colleges across the country have reported waves of student environmentalists committed to "greening" their schools through student-faculty partnerships, environmental clubs, honor-society projects, and other means. From trash dumps and recycling sorting to educational campaigns born from the construction of greener academic buildings, college faculty say more students are arriving on campus in search of environmental activism and expecting to find it. Students aren't the only ones. Faculty and staff members, too, are working to improve campus sustainability. The movement bridges generations and shows no signs of letting up. College faculty say they're delighted to see such dedication to their campuses and surrounding communities and foresee even more growth in the future. The author tracks the growth of student-led efforts to environmentalism on campus and discusses how students further their environmental passions through clubs and groups.
