Eco Rep Profiles
An Eco Rep is a leader within their community who works as a liaison between the Office of Sustainability and their fellow residents to foster and promote more sustainable living. Eco Reps attend peer-to-peer sustainability education trainings and broaden their knowledge via student club involvement and student government programs. Throughout the year the Eco Reps and the ResRAP staff present educational workshops and programs in order to teach residents how they can do their part and make a difference. It is our hope that students will take the knowledge and resources they acquire from this program and continue to implement those practices throughout their life.
After six years of the program, Eco Reps will finally be able to gain credit for their work during winter and spring quarter. Listed as the ENVS 449C Seminar class with instructor Seth Vidaña, Eco Reps will now be earning 1 credit per participating quarter.
Eco Reps host events in their halls to encourage sustainability through education, outreach, and community involvement. If you are interested in becoming an Eco Rep, contact the ResRAP Coordinator.
