A brief description of how the student educators are selected (1st program):

All interested, residential students are eligible to apply for the Environmental Residents (ER) program. They must fill out an application, attach a resume and two letters of reference. The group's student co-chairs and staff advisor read over the applications and invite applicants to attend a brief interview. After the interviews, the co-chairs and advisor select candidates based on their availability and willingness to support sustainability programming.

Students who wish to be a part of the ER program without participating in the residential aspect can join the ERs as a club member.


A brief description of the formal training that the student educators receive (1st program):

In the week before Orientation and first-year students arrive on campus, the Environmental Residents return for a two-day retreat and training program. Led by their staff advisor, they get an overview of sustainability, read and discuss articles pertaining to sustainability generally as well as related to the education and outreach they'll be doing on campus. The ERs go over the expectations for their position--acting as the sustainability liaisons to the student body--and discuss their role as the main environmental interest club on campus. They brainstorm ideas for events and activities for the whole year, as well as plan out their calendar and begin the nomination process to elect the executive board. In addition to their training and planning during the retreat, they also get a chance to have a little fun through get-to-know-you and team building activities designed to foster a strong group dynamic.


A brief description of the staff and/or other financial support the institution provides to the program (1st program):

The Environmental Residents are directly supported by the Office of Sustainability with the Sustainability Fellow serving as their staff advisor. They are also a recognized and registered organization through the student senate, and receive a budget supported by the Dean of Students office and the Student Government Association. The Office of Sustainability also provides financial support to the ERs activities when needed.
