Eco-Reps: Peer Environmental Education Program

Eco-Reps are a team of peer-educators committed to building a sustainable future. The Eco-Reps work with the Office of Civic Engagement & Leadership and the Office of Sustainability.

Eco-Reps plan events with sustainability themes in their residence hall, promote sustainability initiatives across campus, and connect their peers to environmental student groups, staff and faculty. Eco-Reps have the opportunity take part in workshops, field trips, and leadership training that prepare them for sustainability careers in the future.
