Initiatives

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 is a strategy called for in Calvin College’s five year plan to improve the equipping of students to better serve as articulate and resourceful community leaders.
CEAP also highlights our interdependence with the local community. [learn more]
