Eco Leader Application

The Eco Leaders Peer Education Program is a group of residential students in the residence halls and Aggie Village who serves as a peer educator to raise awareness of sustainability initiatives and encourage environmentally responsible behaviors including composting, energy conservation, sustainable transportation, food security, and environmental justice. There is one Eco Leader in each residence hall, and four Eco Leaders for Aggie Village. The Eco Leaders are a diverse group of students who represent multiple identities and perspectives. No prior sustainability experience is needed, just a passion for engagement and making a difference.

Residence Hall Eco Leaders receive a $1,650 housing stipend per semester for five hours of engagement work each week and participate in a course every Wednesday from 4-5:15 p.m. during the academic year. These Eco Leaders are eligible to earn up to 3 academic credits through the School of Global Environmental Sustainability (GES 130 – 1 credit in the Fall semester, and  GES330 – 2-3 credits in the Spring semester).

Similarly, Aggie Village Eco Leaders receive $1,650 housing stipend per semester for five hours of engagement work each week, and participate in a weekly class every Wednesday from 4-5 p.m.

You will be able to attach a resumé and other materials on the next page to help us learn more about your skills and interests as part of the application process. The Eco Leaders program welcomes all students and perspectives, regardless of previous experience.

The application for the 2023-2024 Eco Leaders cohort will open in Summer 2023. Positions in Durward and Newsom Halls are currently open.
