The mission of the Student Sustainability Ambassadors Program is to serve as a support and training program for students who have leadership characteristics and have a passion for creating positive change in the community through hands on experience. Ambassadors serve as the primary student educators and coordinators for campus and community related sustainability initiatives ranging from energy and water conservation and waste diversion to sustainability in the supply chain and food and dining. Ambassadors can take on various levels of involvement from project development and management, communications, marketing, research, and more!
The Sustainability Ambassadors are selected through an application process
Student Sustainability Ambassadors learn project management, leadership, and communications skills in the planning and execution of tasks and campaigns throughout the year during meetings through guidance from EcoMotion and hands on experience in implementing and reflecting on events and activities.
The Student Sustainability Ambassadors program is facilitated by EcoMotion, a sustainability advising firm.
Enactus is an international nonprofit organization of students, faculty, and corporate leaders who focus on creating entrepreneurial sustainable solutions for community issues through outreach programs. The Bryant chapter's Green Team focuses on green initiatives on campus and off.
The University funds Enactus through the Student Senate's organizational budgeting process. Enactus must submit a budget each year in order to retain funding from the Student Senate. The Senate is allotted funding by the University to underwrite these costs.
Students receive hands on training in implementing activities
The University funds Enactus through the Student Senate’s annual budgeting process. Enactus must request a budget each year in order to obtain funding. The Senate allocates budgets to requesting student organizations from funds available through the Student Involvement Fee
The Community Activism and Leadership Organization, or CALO, focuses on directing student effort toward social good. The Green Initiative primarily focuses on finding sustainable solutions to environmental challenges and opportunities on campus and in the surrounding community.
This is a recognized student club open to the students at Bryant to join
Typically CALO members receive training when they volunteer with organizations that require it. For example, when students volunteer with the RISCPA there is a handling and orientation process. When students begin tutoring at local middle schools, there was a certain amount of training as well as background checks.
This club has a club budget like other recognized clubs at the University
