Meet the Eco-Reps

The Eco-Reps are enthusiastic student sustainability educators that focus on campus sustainability issues. Through Eco-Hall events, Eco-Boards, and monthly green campaigns, we hope to inspire our fellow students to live more sustainably. We are here to spark conversations and action about numerous topics such as recycling, energy and water use, and environmental justice. Some of our recent activities include Eco-Orientation for new students, forming the Roundtable for intra-campus dialogue on environmental work and organizing MHC’s War-of-the-Watts competition.

We operate under the umbrella of the Miller Worley Center for the Environment and also work closely with Dining Services, the Dean of Students, Residential Life, LITS, and the President’s Office. In collaboration with Facilities Management, Eco-Reps help students live green at MHC by providing students and staff with energy-efficient LED lightbulbs and recycling bins.

Please contact the Eco-Reps with questions or suggestions.
