Carleton College

Courtney R. Dufford
Double majoring in political science and environmental studies, Courtney Dufford is passionate about the intersection of social justice activism and environmental policy. As a Carleton College Sustainability Assistant, she has collaborated with different campus groups to design and implement a new campus waste system and seeks to challenge the systemic default to bottled water as a co-leader of Carleton’s Take Back the Tap group. In her free time, Courtney enjoys swimming, fostering community, and watching her houseplants grow.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
