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

The Green Offices program is a points-based certification process that empowers UT faculty and staff to generate sustainable change in their workspace. A student-led program through the Office of Sustainability, it seeks to advance the University’s sustainability goals and commitment to being stewards of the environment.

Green Offices participants are volunteers and are designated as Green Stewards. Office of Sustainability student interns provide on-site consultations and office walk-throughs for Green Stewards. They provide support for sustainability initiatives the Green Steward would like to implement within their workplace. Additionally, the Green Steward is provided with a Certification Checklist, a list of sustainable changes to implement in thier office's daily activities. Office of Sustainability student interns provide ongoing support and resources to aid Green Stewards in implementing these changes. After achieving each level of certification, the office receives a certificate and recognition on the Green Offices website.
