Think Globally, Act Locally, Model Individually

Central Florida Community College’s environmental service course linked community service, participation in the political process and public policy development through the study of environmental science and student service. The course (which fulfills biological or physical science credit for participating students) was divided into three parts in which students learned about global environmental problems, worked to solve local environmental problems, and strove to become individual agents of change. The course’s community contact and group research helped students understand how to use the political process to address community problems. Website
