The Environmental Center: Year 50

In 1970, it began with a handful of CU students dedicated to providing a more sustainable, just future for their community and world. In 2020, the E-Center has expanded and affected positive change in a variety of sustainability spheres locally and nationally.  This year, we invite you to celebrate the E-Center's storied history of environmental advocacy spearheaded by the dedication of 5 decades of student, faculty, and campus partner change-agents. As we celebrate where we have been, we look forward to the continuing impact of our current and future E-Center staff and programming.
