A brief description of the program, including examples of peer-to-peer outreach activities:

EcoReps support sustainability educational programs in the five on-campus residence halls (Dodge, Glen Park, Leach, Weld and Main Building), which if at full occupancy, house 479 students.

Examples of peer-to-peer outreach activities include working with RAs to develop floor programs, providing in-hall support for recycling system monitoring (signage replacement, special collections during RecycleMania, etc.) and energy and water conservation efforts (signage, special promotions like Energy Challenges).


A brief description of how the student educators are selected:

EcoReps are self-selected with ideally one representative for each residence hall, but depending upon volunteer interest, more in residence halls with larger populations.


A brief description of the formal training that the student educators receive to prepare them to conduct peer outreach:

At the start of their service term, EcoReps are provided with training and supporting reference materials. Plus, EcoReps are able to access the EcoReps leader in the event that questions about education on proper procedures arise. Printed materials (signage, RA flyers, etc) are supported by the Center for Sustainability in the Environment and/or the Dean of Students.


A brief description of the financial and/or administrative support the institution provides to the program (e.g. annual budget and/or faculty/staff coordination):

EcoReps are volunteers, but all training and resource and outreach materials are provided to them free of charge. For special promotional campaigns, the Center for Sustainability may provide incentives (GOTCHA cards, food, freebies).
