Students For Environmental Action Club Relaunches

For the first time since 1997, The Students for Environmental Action club has returned to Baldwin Wallace’s campus and has big plans for sustainability on campus. The club, led by sophomore Julia Gersey, president, and senior Amanda Crisler, vice president, relaunched last fall. The club has ambitions to significantly impact Baldwin Wallace’s campus sustainability.  


Baldwin Wallace has recently recognized the club as an official organization, but they could not secure any funding for this academic year. Despite this setback, the club is still set on working towards its goals. The club is teaming up for Earth Week with the David & Frances Brain Center for Community Engagement and Pollinator Partnership, a nonprofit organization focused on promoting pollinator health.  


The club will be holding a service-oriented flower planting event held in Berea that will educate participants on pollinator health. This event will allow the club to perform service in the community, while simultaneously offering education to students interested in learning more about sustainability and its role on campus and in student life. 


Beyond this event, SEA has goals to implement sustainable solutions to create a more environmentally friendly campus life at BW. The club wants to work towards reducing campus food waste, finding solutions for reusability in dining halls, and bringing more composting to campus.  


“We want to promote and advocate for a cleaner campus where we can all live,” Crisler said.
