EcoRep: By giving the EcoReps the skills and knowledge needed to promote environmentally responsible behavior in freshmen residence halls, our program strives to create an environmentally literate student population.

What is an EcoRep?

EcoReps are enthusiastic incoming freshman with a desire to promote change.

There are 30 EcoReps each year -- at least one on each floor of the freshman dorms. The EcoReps are guided by two upperclassmen student leaders who are experienced in on-campus environmental efforts and who have both themselves gone through the EcoReps Program. EcoReps educate the students in their halls on environmental issues like waste reduction and energy conservation by planning dorm activities and events.

The EcoReps are taught about sustainability through an EcoReps class. This two credit seminar meets twice a week for either a lecture, discussion, or program meeting and covers many topics including recycling, energy, and climate change.
