EcoReps are students who have a passion for sustainability and are interested in creating change. Representatives educate their peers on sustainable living practices, organize and execute waste diversion efforts local to their dorm, plan sustainability-related events throughout the year, communicate and market campus environmental activities, engage in campus-related sustainability research, and act as a sustainable living example for their community. With the direct support of the College sustainability coordinator and with assistance from a variety of campus stakeholders, the EcoReps implement projects to improve sustainability efforts campus-wide.
