Get Involved

A variety of curricular and co-curricular opportunities also exist for students interested in environmental study. Earlham’s newly created Center for Environmental Action links learning and doing through experiential field study including outdoor education, student-faculty research, and practical initiatives in sustainability. Students can also minor in Outdoor Education as well as develop their skills as leaders by learning how to plan, prepare for, and lead outdoor education trips and courses ranging from one-day environmental education activities to multi-day wilderness expeditions. Miller Farm, located just off-campus, is a student-run initiative involving various projects in sustainable living and agriculture. The Earlham Environmental Action Coalition (EEAC), a student-run club, is also a great avenue to pursue specific projects and areas of environmental advocacy both on and off-campus.

Finally, several off-campus study opportunities exist, including the New Zealand semester in Environmental Studies, the East Africa Off-Campus Study Program, the Semester in Environmental Science at the Marine Biological Center at Woods Hole, Massachusetts, and several environmentally-focused May Term courses.
