A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome:

The Sustainability Student Worker Network is made up of Saint Benedict students, faculty, and staff as a way to knit together the CSB campus departments so that we may work together towards greater campus sustainability. The goal is to have the student workers of CSB work with their supervisors to create a task outline that incorporates sustainability that can be completed during their work hours. The CSB student workers would use their work hours to implement sustainability in the office of their employer either individually or with a team of student workers.

Offices join the network agreeing that their student employees can devote an hour or two to improving office sustainability each week. With the help of the Office of Sustainability, an assessment is completed and action plan developed for each new office. The student then works with the staff to move identified initiatives forward. Participating students meet monthly to discuss progress, challenges and next steps.
