Environmental Advocacy Group (EAG)

EAG is an organization on campus that focuses on the interaction between humans and the environment. The EAG was founded in 2005 and has been very active in environmental programs on campus and in the Worcester area. The group helped implement single stream recycling on the campus and has worked with the college administration to reduce waste generation and energy consumption on campus. The work of the group was recognized by the National Wildlife Foundation with a Campus Ecology Fellowship awarded to Chris Noonan the founder of the EAG.

The group has brought speakers such as Kevin Knobloch, the president of the Union of Concerned Scientists, to campus and shows films on environmental issues. They also participate in activities such as local park clean-ups, Blackstone River monitoring programs, and other events.

They are always open to new ideas, and remember, no idea is too big and no idea is too small. The group meets on Tuesdays @ 3:00pm in the Ghosh Science and Tech Building Room 308. If you can’t make the meetings no worries, keep up to date with newsletters and help participate in activities to improve our environment, because a few hours of your time makes the efforts of the people who put in hundreds of hours much more rewarding.
