• Outreach/Education

    Inside and out of the classroom, L&C inspires its community to “Think Green. Live Green.”

    Green Curriculum

    The college not only features a number of sustainability-centered academic programs and courses, both credit and non-credit, but also infuses sustainability into the general curriculum.

    Student Organizations and Activities

    The college offers an opportunity for students to get involved with campus sustainability through the Student Sustainability Association, annual Earth Week activities and events and through the Sustainability Center, located on the Godfrey campus.

    Sustainability Center

    The center includes a lounge where students can host meetings, study, research or just hang out, and a library of resources available for check-out, from books on sustainable ethics, to pamphlets with specific steps to reduce water and energy usage, to movies about sustainable farming practices.

    Green Speaker Series

    Guest speakers visit campus throughout the year to touch on various sustainable topics from green building to transportation and more.

    Outreach Programs waterfest

    L&C gets the general community involved in sustainability through various outreach efforts, including the annual Water Fest, where elementary school children come to campus to learn about water quality and conservation issues; RiverWatch, a program that trains citizen scientists to monitor water quality issues in their communities, and through NGRREC's Field Station, which is open weekdays for self-guided tours and 11:30 a.m. Friday for guided tours.
