2) engage themselves to rethink, reduce, reuse, and recycle in that order,

3) transform themselves, wherever possible, into a more sustainably aware and educated individual, and

4) use the knowledge and experience they gain at Saint Mary’s to improve the sustainability of the communities in which they live, learn and work.
