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

HAS is a group of passionate student representatives making an organized and effective effort to improve sustainability within Hope's student life. This is a paid position, under the advisory of the Green Team, and offers an opportunity to engage their peers about sustainability topics such as recycling, energy and water conservation, and food through events, outreach, social media, surveys, informational tables, and classroom presentations.
Our HAS interns have contact with a lot of different peer groups on campus through partnerships with departments like: dining services, library, bookstore, student life, facilities, student congress, greek life, new student orientation, athletics, and various academic programs so it would be hard to imagine that there would be many students on campus that have not been served during some type of contact with our Hope Advocates for Sustainability.

Before the semester starts we host a day-long training event for the HAS interns and they meet weekly with the Director for the Office of Sustainability.
