Calvin Environmental Assessment Program (CEAP)
The Calvin Environmental Assessment Program (CEAP) encourages an ethic of service and care taking by helping students pay attention to that which is closest at hand—the air, wildlife, wetlands, and human communities that surround them.

CEAP also highlights our interdependence with the local community. [learn more]
