The application process and hiring for the 2012-2013 ECO-Reps program will commence in late summer/early fall.
The Colorado College ECO-Rep program, supported by the Sustainability Office, promotes peer-to-peer education to foster sustainable living practices on and off campus. All residential areas, including large residence halls, apartments, smaller campus houses and off-campus areas are served by one or more student ECO-Reps. Selected ECO-Reps educate locally in their respective residential spaces, through formal and informal programming, marketing materials, and events. In addition, ECO-Reps implement conservation measures in their residential areas. Examples of activities include monitoring and reporting on energy and water use, identifying opportunities to minimize paper waste, coordinating CFL light bulb exchanges, and supporting material reuse & recycling. ECO-Reps also participate collectively in campus-wide initiatives such as Recyclemania and Campus Conservation Nationals. Stipends for ECO-Reps are $50 per block, with additional funds available to support programming.
