The students at the University of Michigan in Dearborn are actively making initiatives to work toward a greener, more sustainable future for Metro Detroit.
The Student Environmental Association (SEA) at the university shares a vision to make the social, economic and ecological environment accessible and relevant to students through quality events and recreational activities and by cultivating a more vibrant, sustainable community on and around the campus.
In order to achieve this goal, the SEA aims to inform, educate and empower students to:
- Acknowledge the greater community
- Engage the environmental
- Develop a sense of wonder
- Take informed, compassionate, sustainable action for social responsibility, economic prosperity and ecological integrity
The SEA was originally established in 1979 but was reestablished in 2006 by Eric Bacyinski. According to the SEA website, the organization has consistently engaged the community with events like Focus the Nation 2007, the first Sustainability Fest 2009, environmental literacy and more.
Today, the SEA continues to work with the community and host events to reach Metro Detroit and “experience the environment.”
