The Mission of the Environmental Concerns Committee (ECC) naturally divides into two fields of action:
Practical Institutional Actions toward a Sustainable Future
The ECC will encourage the College to find ways to conserve the use of fossil fuels and limit the production of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. It will also work with the Administration and the campus community to develop a comprehensive recycling program. It will seek to link the College's actions with those of our wider Crawfordsville and regional communities.
Fostering Sustainable Education: Seeking "the Change of Mind on which Change Toward Sustainability Depends."
The ECC will encourage the integration of environmental mindfulness into the daily social, intellectual, and artistic life of our community. As education is at the root of our identity as a community, we need to be in constant reflection about the role of education in achieving a sustainable society.
