Student Environmental Initiatives

The Deep South Center for Environmental Justice has officially established the "Students for Environmental Justice Club" on Dillard University's campus. Plans are underway to initiate several activities that emphasize education awareness in environmental justice, recycling, clean production, green building, and global warming:
  1. We will implement a series of brown bag lunch sessions on environmental justice, clean production, and global warming in Louisiana.
  2. We will disseminate brochures and fact sheets concerning environmental issues.
  3. We will develop a Clean Production Corps that will include students from local colleges (Dillard University, Xavier University of Louisiana, Southern University at New Orleans, Tulane University, and Loyola University of New Orleans) who will be trained with community residents in clean production and who will subsequently conduct training sessions for other students at the campuses.
