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

The Sustainability Teams program gives Missouri State University employees an opportunity to not only reduce environmental impacts, but to also support social and economic sustainability initiatives through Sustainable Development efforts. Teams commit to implementing strategies, share best practices, as well as educate and engage their peers. Any faculty or staff member can start a Sustainability Team. Teams are usually developed with departments. This process includes designating a Team Coordinator as the primary contact, submitting a Sustainability Team Application Packet, and compiling a list of members.
Team Coordinators attend quarterly training sessions on relevant sustainability topics. These can include training presentations by the Sustainability Coordinator, shared best practices by a team member, or training session by a community organization that is focused on sustainability.
The Goal of Sustainability Teams:
To reduce environmental impacts on the MSU campus (I.E. energy use, waste generation)
Promote sustainable development strategies on campus
To create a collegial atmosphere of cooperation among different units of the university
