Our 2008 Executive Board:
Affect is an environmental organization that serves the Augustana
campus and the Quad City community. In doing so, students gain the
experience of working with faculty and staff from the college and
people throughout the Quad City area. More specifically, the group
focuses on: first, promoting environmental awareness and; second,
having fun in the natural world.
Examples of Global Affect projects and events include:
- promoting co-mingle and paper recycling
- sponsoring campus and community clean-ups
- conducting research into energy efficient and environmentally responsible architecture
well as promoting general environmental awareness through a whole host
of Earth Week activities. The college has engaged in an increased
effort to recycle, especially with two staff dedicated to handling
on-campus recycling this year, and we are excited to be a part of that
- managing battery recycling
Global Affect’s involvement on campus and throughout the
community is growing each year. The organization is always looking for
new ideas and enthusiastic people to help in its efforts. Meetings are
usually on Thursday evenings at 7:15 in Olin Center Room 208 (on the
campus of Augustana College). Join us!
