    Yes, very much so. A lot of great leaders and scholars come from colleges and universities. Environmental groups on campus give students an outlet for helping to protect the environment. It is strength in numbers for disseminating information and then going out and doing old fashioned activism. As students graduate, they are instilled with a desire for social change in terms of environmentalism. They take this into the workplace, like as a journalism or CEO or the military. Now that person can use those same skills from environmental studies groups to spread to the next level.
