In the fall of 2012, ESF launched its first Eco-Reps program.
Eco-Reps are ESF student volunteers who work in Centennial Hall residences to raise awareness about global and local sustainability issues and share sustainable living practices on campus with their peers through planned campaigns and events. The Eco-Reps program is overseen by ESF’s Office of Energy and Sustainability, however, individuals are encouraged to exercise their leadership and independence so that the experience becomes mainly a student-run initiative. Eco-Reps plan and hold two-to-three campaigns, or events, per semester based on a selected theme for the month. In years past themes included energy, water and growing your own plants, and events typically involved movies, food and an activity/workshop. The positions allow students to learn, teach and stay involved throughout the semester, while meeting and working with other student leaders involved in similar sustainability initiatives on campus.
