The Fierce History of Now: 25 years of change with the Environmental Center [VIDEO]

On October 2, 1991, a fully funded Environmental Center, or EC, opened its doors in an attic space in College Union Building, marking a permanent change in the way the school operates, and putting FLC on the maps as a green leader.

On this episode of Fortifact, we’ll have a look at how the EC fits into half a century of expanding concern for the earth’s systems. And we’ll look at the the Center’s emphasis on graduating students capable of becoming environmental leaders.

We’ll also talk to some of the Center’s builders, hear about its current goals and programs, and explore the EC’s legacy as it prepares to celebrate 25 years of advocacy for the planet and its people.
