The Rachel Carson Campus Network connects over 35 campuses to interdisciplinary environmental and social justice research and civic engagement opportunities.

Yale’s Kroon Hall

Rachel Carson is well-known for igniting the modern ecological movement and inspiring college students. She did so by linking with public health specialists, oceanographers, marine biologists, radiation specialists, epidemiologists, and more in her effort to expose the negative health effects of pesticides. With her friends and colleagues, Carson created a growing network of concerned and caring campus environmentalists on campus and beyond.

The network links students, faculty, staff, and administrators at campuses nationwide to the Rachel Carson Council to provide and share resources, engage a diverse array of advocates, and create lasting changes in policy and practice for a sustainable future.
