Green Team Southwestern Vision

Recognizing that the majority of private colleges are located in rural areas and are the economic drivers of their communities, Green Team Southwestern serves to create a model of sustainable living that will transform both higher education and the people it serves.

Green Team Southwestern Mission

Green Team Southwestern is a service-learning program dedicated to responsible citizenship and environmental sustainability.

Mission Interpreted: The Green Team is dedicated to:
  • Creating a living laboratory of sustainable learning in which all members of the community develop healthy habits of environmental stewardship.
  • Implementing organizational changes that result in carbon neutrality.
  • Infusing the broader communities of Winfield, Cowley County and beyond with the principles and practical applications of environmental sustainability.
