Total number of degree-seeking students enrolled at the institution:
17552

Program name (1st program):
Sustainable Campus Program

Number of students served by the program to whom peer-to-peer sustainability outreach and education is offered (1st program):
14817

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

At the end of each Fiscal year, student elections are held to fill the Student Advisory Committee to the Auraria Board (SACAB). This includes two student members from each of the three institutions on the Auraria Campus. The Chair of the committee then selects the Chairs of the SACAB subcommittees, including the Sustainable Campus Program. The SCP chair then appoints two members from each of the institutions to serve on the committee for that fiscal year to serve as sustainability educators.


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

Though each term is unique, members of the SCP typically receive training in the form of professional conferences, workshops, and one-on-one interaction with institution staff. For example, the 2012 SCP attended the USGBC Rocky Mountain Green conference where students attended sessions such as “Engaging Occupants Through Green Building Education.”


A brief description of the staff and/or other financial support the institution provides to the program (1st program):

The SCP has a fulltime staff member (Sustainability Officer) dedicated to supporting the committee. Ex-officio members from student life and the Campus Director of Student Services are also regularly in attendance at the committee meetings.
Financially, the SCP collects $5 per semester from students from each institution. These funds are allocated for many areas of sustainability – with 5% budgeted specifically for sustainability education and outreach.

The Sustainable Campus Program is offered to all three institutions on the Auraria Campus and to graduate, undergraduate, as well as non degree-seeking students. Because Anshutz Medical Campus is a separate campus from Auraria, students registered at AMC are not eligible for this educator's program. This accounting method was utilized to obtain the number (reported here for FY or Fall 2010) of students served by the program (all enrolled students at UCD) versus the number of degree seeking students (for both UCD & AMC).
