April 2, 2019

Penn's Student Eco-Reps program is an environmental leadership opportunity for students interested in advancing sustainability through the implementation of campus-based projects. Students work as paid employees of Penn’s Sustainability Office and collaborate with our University partners to carry out projects in support of Penn’s Climate Action Plan.

Student Eco-Reps work in teams to help implement sustainability projects with various campus partners. Each year, we solicit projects from the Penn community and select a handful of opportunities to implement in collaboration with Penn departments. Reports on the projects are shared with the Penn community at a meeting each spring; this year the presentations are April 26. Details will be posted to the website this summer. Projects in 2019 include:

  • Composting Pilot
  • Green Living Certification
  • Housekeeping Sustainability Tracking
  • Penn Park Meadows
  • Shifting Sands: Soil-less Soils
  • Stormwater Collection in Street Trees 
  • Sustainable Solutions
  • Wellness & Sustainability
  • Year of Stuff
