Why should we at Calvin College care about the environment?
We are called to be stewards of the creation in which we are embedded. "Our purpose is to infuse Calvin's vigorous liberal arts education with thoughtful, Biblically-based principles that lay a foundation for living in a way that honors the Creator and His beloved creation. The Reformed tradition recognizes the important role of creation as God's general revelation of goodness and grace. We also recognize our responsibility to interpret, wisely use, and compassionately care for God's creation. In doing so, we take seriously the Biblical mandate to be stewards of God's good earth."
