Little steps can make a big difference.
When we work together to protect and preserve the environment, we can make a difference. What's your passion? There are numerous ways to get involved:
• Recycle. (Even broken cell phones or used ink and toner cartridges are eligible. Email us for more information.)
• Join the Sustainability Club. Members educate the community about sustainable practices and the human costs of environmental problems. They work with the University to enhance sustainable practices and promote more green initiatives. They also raise money for community causes and perform community service with their partner, FEED Dayton.
• Become a River Steward. Students from all majors help conserve and promote the Great Miami River corridor.
• Participate in ETHOS (Engineers in Technical Humanitarian Opportunities of Service-Learning). Engineering students use their technical know-how and community-building skills to work on sustainable development projects, such as solar cookers and wood dryers in Bolivia and other developing countries.
• Live in a SEE (Sustainability, Energy and the Environment) learning-living community. Students commit to living sustainably and show their neighbors what it means to live green.
• Volunteer with the Marianist Environmental Education Center and help maintain a native prairie a short drive from campus.
