Be a Sustainability Ambassador

Eco Reps is a national movement of students for sustainability. The program aims to foster students and groups that support sustainable initiatives and lifestyles on their campus.

The Eco Reps Program at Furman trains student leaders to promote sustainable practices on campus and encourage sustainably responsible behaviors among peers. Reps work within the residence halls across campus to model sustainable behaviors and plan and deliver sustainability educational programs intended to inspire peers to live more sustainable lives. We strive to create a culture of sustainability!
