Eco Reps (Application Required)

Who Are We?

Description

The Eco-Rep living-learning community is a unique community at Indiana State University because Eco-Reps do not live together on one floor or in one building. Instead, eco-reps are spread throughout campus. Students who participate in the eco-rep living-learning community have an interest in learning more about sustainability and have a desire to be a campus leader and peer-educator about sustainability on campus. Members of this community will have an opportunity to learn behind-the-scenes about Indiana State University and the Office of Residential Life's commitment to sustainability. As part of this community, students have the opportunity to partner with faculty, staff, and students to make real changes that impact the health of our planet, plan exciting events, and encourage peers to get involved.

Undergraduate students with a passion, or even just an interest, in learning about sustainability, a desire to teach their ability to lead others and make significant change, and a willingness to commit to the program for an academic year are encouraged to apply.
