Review from Guidestar

I have the honor of working with two of Earth University's alumni for the past four years. I admire their deep connection to their alma mater's beliefs and mission. They have inspired children at our school to become greener citizens by sponsoring The Green Team, a group of students that stay after school to go room by room to collect and dispose of paper for our city to recycle. These alumni celebrated last year's Earth Day by finding tree donors and having all of the schools in our learning commmunity plant trees. If you ask these two global citizens where their drive comes from to make all of us global thinkers as well they will inevitably trace their passion back to Earth University.

Ever since I first heard a presentation about Earth University, I've been in love with it's philosophy, educational approach and impact on those it reaches. Earth faculty (not just "recruiters) recruit students from small towns and villages, young community leaders that may not have ever gone far from home but have leadership potential.

During the first week of school they ensure that all students are able to share their expertise creating an environment of equity and respect that crosses economic and ethnic lines.

The curriculum includes a focus on sustainable agriculture, community service and entreprenurism. All students participate in a project that creates a product or service related to sustainable agriculture that earns money. The balancing of sustainable economic development and stewardship of the earth is what we need for future generations to have a viable place on this earth our common home.

hearing students speak at presentations in the Bay Area, learning about projects that cumulatively have substantive impact on sustainable rainforest agriculture, and meeting with staff and faculty over the years.
