Statement of Purpose

We endeavor to:

  • educate our students and community members about the need and purpose of environmental practices.
  • promote individual and shared environmental responsibility within the RCDS community.
  • identify avenues within the curriculum and beyond that create educational opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to teach and practice issues of sustainability.
