The Campus Sustainability Coordinators (CSCs) is a student organization focused on encouraging a culture of environmental awareness and sustainable living on campus. The group works regularly with the Office of Sustainability Integration and facilities to plan educational campus events and create greater awareness about sustainability through campaigns. In the past two years, the CSCs helped organize sustainability events during orientation, hosted an event to educate the campus about waste and recycling, sponsored several screenings, facilitated the delivery of compost bins to dormitory and office kitchens, and organized campus sustainability tours for visiting guests and students.


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

The program consists of about 20 Campus Sustainability Coordinators (CSCs) from across the five commons systems. All participants submit applications including their related experience, why they are interested in the program, what sub-team they would like to join, and why they think they would make a good CSC.


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

At the beginning of the school year, all participants attend a workshop with the Director of Sustainability and the Sustainability Communication and Outreach Coordinator to discuss ideas of what sustainability means as well as to get an overview of sustainability efforts at Middlebury College and how the program fits into these efforts. They also learn details about the structure of the program, resources available to them, and what is expected of them.

In the fall of 2013, CSCs participated in leadership training organized by Middlebury's Learning and Development Manager and the Office of Sustainability. Training included completing and interpreting the DiSC Assessment Test.
