Eco-RA Program

The Colorado College Eco-RA 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-RA. Selected Eco-RA’s educate locally in their respective residential spaces, through formal and informal programming, marketing materials, and events. In addition, ECO-RA’s 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.
