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.
