Both leadership opportunities enable you to develop skills, build your resume, log volunteer hours, meet and connect with other students across campus (+ faculty and staff), and work on projects that have a real impact.

  • Compost Managers (CMs) are leaders within on-campus residential communities. The success of the Residential Composting Program relies on having volunteers for each residential community; the more volunteers, the more composting infrastructure. CMs oversee kitchen compost bins within their residential communities and educate students on composting practices. CMs empty compost bins weekly, ensure zero contamination, and communicate with residential staff and the Campus Sustainability Office.In this role you will:  Help coordinate and oversee use of bins, provide educational content, address issues
  • Sustainability Student Leaders (SSLs). will serve as a think tank and an action-oriented, problem-solving group who will identify sustainability-related issues in our residential communities (and on campus) and work collaboratively together and with the Campus Sustainability Office to address them. Identify issues, serve as sounding board, develop strategies, work with CSO/RNSP to take action.
