What is a SEAC?

SEAC is a student advocacy organization focused on working towards and promoting positive change for environmental protection and sustainability. Over the years, we’ve grown from a small group of devoted students to one of the largest organizations on campus. Now with 50-100 active members, and over 1,000 students on our listserv, we have the ability to create change in a wide variety of ways, both on campus and in our larger communities. We meet Mondays at 8:30 in James Blair 205. 


W&M SEAC is a consensus-based organization; there is no “president.” Instead, two “Facilitators” lead the group discussion during weekly meetings, which serve as a time for subcampaigns to gather and share their weekly progress. If you are new to SEAC and want to learn more, our facilitators would be the people to ask!

Our Facilitators for the 2015-2016 year are:  Ben Olinger & Abby Holcombe

Two SEACretaries manage the listserv and send out weekly emails, and keep general tabs on the goings-on of the organization.
