A brief description of how the student educators are selected:

The Green Raider positions are advertised as a campus employment opportunity, which allows for any student to apply. Additionally, faculty recommendations are sought and those recommended students are formally encouraged to apply for the positions. All students that complete an application are interviewed by the Sustainability Manager and another member of the Sustainability Management Advisory Committee. Green Raiders are then selected based on both their written application and their formal interview.

The Green Raiders participate in a Retreat at the beginning of the school year and Weekly meetings thereafter. These meetings are also attended by the Sustainability Manager. Some meetings are used for planning upcoming events/programs, but about half of these meetings are discussion based, serving as training on sustainability topics/issues.
