In the 1960s a new awareness was born in the DOC, that involvement and love of the out-of-doors could include more than recreational pursuits. In 1969 the DOC formed its Environmental Studies Division to promote environmental education and activism. ESD continues to influence the College’s policies and management. The club’s energy use and recycling programs have driven the College’s environmental awareness and improved practices on campus over the past three decades, and recently members of ESD were influential in implementing a 1991 Environmental Studies 50 recommendation for the creation of the Dartmouth Organic Farm.
The club also hosts speakers and conferences throughout the year to educate its members and the Dartmouth community.
