Energy and Conservation Organization (ECO)

Energy & Conservation Organization (ECO) determines and implements sustainable initiatives to “green” the U. They are inspired by our students, faculty, campus, the local environment and current green choices being made globally.

ECO’s vision is to build an environmentally friendly campus, promote green habits, educate and further awareness of environmentally-friendly practices, and to have fun, live big, and be green.

Agency Board Freshman Seat

Every year the board is selected in the spring semester and one spot is reserved for an incoming student. This spot is only available for a Freshmen/New Student. Freshmen are also welcome to apply for the Green Committee. Apply before September 3!

Green Committee

In order to get more student's involved with the work of ECO Agency, the Green Committee was established under the umbrella of the ECO Agency Board. Green Committee members assist ECO Agency board members on their projects and help execute ECO Agency events. Also, Green Committee members work on teams to complete their own sustainable initiatives like the ReUse Store at the campus Farmer's Market on Wednesdays, Recycle Mania, and can submit proposals for their own projects. All students are welcome to apply. Apply before September 3!
