EcoReps is a program for students who 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.

In order to apply, please complete all sections of this application no later than Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.  Applications received after that date will not be considered.
