Be a leader – Be an EcoRep!


EcoReps is a program for students that would like to blend their interests in sustainability with a desire to develop some valuable leadership skills—all while living in a residence hall community.

This group of first- and second-year students embarks on a year-long journey to learn about sustainability and green living through experience-based classes, field trips and training sessions. EcoReps then share this new-found knowledge with their residence hall communities through active programming and dialogue that builds community and provides invaluable professional experience for the EcoReps themselves.
