The Sustainability Center provides opportunities for the campus community to be involved in ecological restoration, resource stewardship, creative transportation strategies, and sustainable food systems initiatives. Students are provided with the resources necessary to accomplish effective sustainability advocacy and project implementation, giving them the experience required to succeed in future leadership roles. The Sustainability Center encourages the cultivation of innovative sustainable practices, opportunities to apply research, and educational outreach.
The Sustainability Center supports student initiatives, campaigns and leadership development. The student group, Earth CORPS, is the Community Organized to Respect, Protect and Sustain the Earth. Students in Earth CORPS organize trips, educational events and campaigns to engage the campus community around issues of environmental sustainability. Past efforts include:
The Re-Use Depot Manager is a student volunteer that directs the vision of how to most effectively exchange community resources, manage student volunteers that care for the space, while reducing what is sent to the landfill.
This year, students will institute a Green Fee, in which a portion of student dues to the Associated Students of Mills College (ASMC) are earmarked for sustainability projects. The Sustainability Center and Sustainability Committee will collaborate with the Green Fee team to identify and execute applicable projects.
Eco-Reps have taken leadership roles in implementing weekly farm work days, weekly Creek Care Days, and implementing the national RecycleMania Competition.
