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

Residential Assistants (RAs) serve as peer counselors for students in their residential suite. Among their duties, these student educators are tasked with disseminating and maintaining awareness of campus sustainability practices and providing updates when new information is available, or reminders are deemed necessary. They also assist the Office of Sustainability each year with new student orientation. RAs attend a week-long training before the academic year begins, of which there is a special sustainability session. They have weekly meetings throughout the academic year, and if necessary, a meeting can be dedicated to sustainability updates. One example of an outreach activity was a dorm decoration contest where the theme was sustainability. Residents were encouraged to use reused and repurposed items as decorations. RAs used this contest to discuss zero waste.
