CLEAN is a student organization devoted to sustainability awareness and education.  Throughout the entire year we meet every other Monday at 7:30 in the SAC to discuss ways to live in an environmentally friendly way, as well as make Clarke's campus more "green". Everyone is welcome -- we would love to hear your ideas and have your support!
