At LEAP, we are dedicated to environmental advocacy and stewardship of the environment. While awareness of environmental issues is one of our main tenets, we operate under the belief that actions usually speak louder than words, which means that we roll up our own sleeves to get things done!
LEAP is organized into several committees which act as focused teams with specific goals. LEAP as a whole relies on its strong student membership and has an executive board that oversees logistical functions within the club. Student members usually pick one or two committees to focus their efforts on. You can read more about each committee in the menus above.
LEAP works with other environmental advocacy organizations in our region through the Lehigh Valley Progressive Student Alliance, Mid-Atlantic Renewable Energy Association, and Sierra Student Coalition. On campus, LEAP works with the TREEhouse, a themed living group in Keefe Hall, the Outdoors society, and other related campus organizations.
