EcoReps is a student-run organization that works with our peers, faculty, and staff to make the University of Washington a more sustainable place by implementing green ideas. Stay up to date with what's happening with the EcoReps blog or Facebook page. Interested in becoming an EcoRep? Just fill out the EcoReps Application Form to get things started.
Through a partnership with the UW Program on the Environment (PoE), students can now earn 1 or more credits for project work in EcoReps and Green Greeks. Although getting credit is great, it is only an option not a requirement...you can still be an EcoRep without choosing the for-credit option. To register for EcoReps (ENVIR 498) you will need to fill out a PoE Learning Contract and send it to Sean Schmidt (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional instructions on how to register.
The University of Washington as an institution is a leader in sustainability, but that does not fully imply that its constituents are. It is our goal as EcoReps to foster a culture of sustainability at UW.
Project Development & Coordination
One of our primary goals at EcoReps is to help students with ideas to further the sustainability of UW. Visit the Project Development Page to learn more about how we can help students develop sustainability projects. In addition, we partner with the UW Sustainability office to help with ongoing programs and special projects. Project development and coordination provides students with unique professional skill building opportunities and they are great to add to resumes. You can learn more about current volunteer and internship opportunities on the Current Opportunities page. Check out our photo gallery for our past projects!
EcoReps works very heavily with the UW Greek Community to help improve the sustainable practices of our chapters on campus by incorporating interactive programs such as the Green Greek Certification and the Green Greek Competition. Visit the Green Greek Page to learn more about how you and your chapter can get more involved!
