History

Earth Week Service Week first began in 2014 as the “Green Apple Day of Service”. This program was organized by the Office of Student Activities (now known as the office of Student Engagement).  Paul Smith’s College canceled classes on Earth Day and students, faculty, and staff would work on community service projects, both on and off campus. Projects ranged from picking up trash along the highway, to building an outdoor natural playground at the local nature center, to planting trees. Starting in 2021 the office of Student Engagement partnered with the Center for Sustainability and this successful program was expanded to a full week of Earth Week Service Week programs!

Center for Sustainability Mission Statement 

The Center for Sustainability empowers a sustainable campus community through infrastructure planning, community and campus partnerships, experiential education, and service learning. We work to build a more resilient campus and community by protecting natural ecosystems, creating economic prosperity and promoting social equity.
