Samford actively looks for ways to show stewardship of the environment and to educate students to become aware of environmental issues. Samford's Go Green effort is led by the Office of Operations and Planning. A history of the effort and information about Samford’s environmental initiatives can be found at http://www.samford.edu/gogreen.
Students can choose to major in Environmental Science, housed in the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences. The curriculum can be found on the Department of Biology web site. In addition, students can earn a Masters Degree in Environmental Management. The courses are offered in the evenings, and more information can be found on the Department of Biology web site.
Students from across campus can become involved in Samford's environmental stewardship. Each spring, Samford hosts an Earth Day celebration with an art contest, student-produced posters from a variety of majors, guest speakers, films, and booths sponsored by local environmental organizations and businesses. More information on Earth Day can be found at http://www.samford.edu/earthday.
