Faculty and Staff Eco-Reps
The Faculty and Staff Eco Rep program was created in June 2010. This program aims to engage faculty and staff in sustainability initiatives and to help train faculty and staff to communicate sustainable behaviors to their departments. Faculty and staff Eco-Reps meet together as a group with the Manager of Sustainability once or twice per month during the academic year and once a month over the summer. Please contact Natalie Berland if you would like to get involved as your department's representative.
The Student Eco-Rep program was created by The Office of Sustainability and the Bentley Residential Housing Association (RHA) in January 2010. Each residence hall has up to three Eco-Reps who serve as sustainability peer-educators. Students run for Eco-Rep positions in their residence halls during the RHA Hall Council elections each fall. The Eco-Reps run the Green Certification Program and are piloting a program called the Green Cup in association with RHA. If you are interested in running, look for the Eco-Rep table at the Fall semester Activities Fair. To learn more about the Eco Reps and how to get involved, explore RHA's Eco-Rep Page!
Learn about the Green Society by visiting their Facebook Page! The Bentley Green Society's primary purpose is to educate the Bentley community on the environmental challenges that the institution and global community are face. By hosting themed awareness events, Green Society hopes to incite action within the campus community. The Green Society runs the Blackout Challenge, RecycleMania and Earth Fest and partners with the Office of Sustainability in support of the Sustainability Film Series each year.
During the fall 2009 semester, the Student Government Association created the Sustainability Project Group as a means to ensure that students are engaged in sustainability initiatives. The group has been extremely successful in bringing changes to Bentley’s campus including the creation of informational Heating and Cooling videos to address student confusion over heating and cooling systems in the residence halls and banning styrofoam from all campus retailers.
