Our Mission

Strengthen students' commitment to creating a more environmentally and socially responsible world by providing them meaningful opportunities to foster change on campus and in our community.

About the Environmental Center

The Environmental Center (EC) is a student-driven organization that has a two-fold mission of advancing sustainability initiatives on campus and throughout our community, while also working with FLC students to provide them with the training and tools to create social- and environmental-change beyond their college experience. 

To achieve this end goal, Students work in teams to determine how we advance sustainability in each of the following areas: Local Food Security, Zero-Waste, Energy and the Real Food Challenge.  Student efforts and their 'change maker' training is supported by two full-time professional staff who provide opportunities for students to take positive action on the issues they care about through jobs, research projects, and volunteer opportunities.  The Environmental Center and our services are available to the entire community and the broader region.
