Principles

Foremost intermediacy, work toward University of Wisconsin campuses' cooperation with natural systems and local-regional economies in utilizing environmentally and socially restorative practices in agriculture, building, trade, and other critical resources.

Second responsiveness, achieve clear goals in noticeable projects on and around UW campus, thereby bringing more students to an ecological awareness if not literacy.

Third diversity, engage students, faculty, administrators, and local land custodians alike to adequately distribute resources for a wide-range of projects supportive of sustainable efforts.

Always democracy, "examine each question in terms of what is ethically and esthetically right, as well as what is economically expedient. A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the [whole] community." (Aldo Leopold - Sand County Almanac)
