Basic information

Students for Compassionate Living seeks to educate the Calvin community about the practical implications of its daily choices with regard to animals, and to support students who strive to redeem fallen structures in issues of animal welfare.

Through on-campus educational workshops, films, dinners, and weekly meetings, we hope to raise awareness of the current ways in which people use animals, and advocate on behalf of animals in the broader community. We believe that such exercises in self-examination and advocacy will develop the ways in which individuals and our community as a whole may live more intentionally with compassion and responsibility.
