The Office of Sustainability's EcoReps program is a student initiative that places student sustainability volunteers in various residence halls on campus.  It is in its pilot year in 2012-13, with six reps in five residence halls. Our EcoReps act as liaisons between students in their residence halls and the Office of Sustainability (OS).  The program was conceived and designed by one of the Office of Sustainability's former Sustainability Fellows, Deirdre MacFeeters (2013).  Our current EcoRep Coordinator is Zach Trauger.  Zach oversees the EcoReps and works with OS and Residence Life staff to help the program function smoothly.  Our EcoRep volunteers collaborate with our Sustainability Fellows a variety of awareness events each semester.  These events are open to residents of their hall, and others by invitation.
