Eco-Reps are undergraduate student employees who help their peers make more sustainable choices while on campus and build an environmental justice ethic that lasts a lifetime. 

Eco-Reps work on outreach and education in the key areas of waste, food and transportation. In the program students build leadership skills and an understanding of campus operations, making Eco-Reps great innovators and problem solvers! Eco-Reps often help implement pilot initiatives to advance or increase sustainability access.
