Grounds for Change

Purpose: Grounds for Change (GFC) is the volunteer and student run coffeehouse on campus. The organization and space will provide an alternative space on campus for socializing, studying, intellectual discussion and debate, community and campus events, and will provide an alcohol-free atmosphere. GFC will strive to support environmentally sustainable practices including purchasing recycled materials, and organic, fair trade, and locally grown and produced products. GFC is a not-for-profit business and all proceeds go back into the upkeep and improvement of the space, or into events for the student body.
