A brief description of the student educators program (1st program):
The Office of Sustainability Internship Program provides students the opportunity to create and execute a sustainability-focused project, many of which include peer-to-peer outreach components. Some examples of previous and current peer-to-peer outreach activities: Student interns created the Residence Hall Composting Pilot, in which they provided residence halls with compost bins and provided education for occupants on what is and is not compostable, as well as the environmental benefits of composting. One student intern is developing a sustainability engagement program for sorority house residents, teaching them how to recycle and compost and why it's important. One student intern hosts workshops at the Grow Lab, UT's on-campus community garden, teaching students about gardening and the benefits of organic crop production. Two student interns perform peer-to-peer outreach regarding food waste education in a campus dining hall each week. They collect post-consumer food waste from dining hall users, explain the impact that wasted food has on the environment, and weigh and advertise the amount of food that is wasted each day to convey the direct contributions of students on campus.
