After massive student protest in the fall 2019 semester, Scripps College will become the final 5C to develop a climate action plan.
Over 100 students demonstrated at Scripps College on Friday, asking the school to join the other 5Cs in signing a carbon commitment.
A student demonstration calling for Scripps College to sign onto a national “carbon commitment” — a climate pledge signed by the other four Claremont Colleges and 329 other colleges and universities nationwide — will take place on Friday.
CMC students are pushing the school to advance its carbon neutrality deadline, and Scripps students are calling to join a sustainibility pact.
Scripps’ inaction on sustainability efforts contradicts its mission as a liberal arts college, discrediting its self-prescribed identity as a leader in building a just society for its students.
