What is EcoReps?

EcoReps is a peer-to-peer sustainability education program. It is designed to give students the resources and knowledge to solve environmental, economic and social sustainability issues. Our goal is to support all facets of sustainability, and JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) Principles are among our core values. Reps function as the student branch of the SHINE Advisory Board, working together to organize campus-wide programming, carry out collaborative projects, and represent the program at various on and off-campus events. Reps will be introduced to new topics, help plan activities and implement actions that will improve sustainability on campus and in the community.


Green Fund 

The Green Fund is a student-paid fee that funds sustainable student-lead initiatives on campus. Any student can submit a proposal to improve sustainability at NMU! 

The Green Fund was a student-generated idea in 2016, and was approved by the Board of Trustees in 2020. Today, more than $100,00 has been put toward a dozen projects on campus, including the large solar array on Fair Ave. 

Click our button below and submit a Green Fund Proposal for a sustainable change on campus! EcoReps review Green Fund submissions every fall, with approved projects to be implemented the following fall. 

For any specific questions regarding the Green Fund email EcoReps.
