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 twice per semseter and twice over the summer. Please contact Natalie Berland if you would like to get involved.
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. If you are interested in running, make sure to pick up an info packet at the Fall Activities Fair. To learn more about the Eco Reps and how to get involved, explore RHA's Eco-Rep Page!

Think Outside the Bottle
Think Outside the Bottle is a campaign working to promote, protect and ensure public funding for our public water systems. Bentley students are working with the Office of Sustainability and Corporate Accountability International a local non-profit that works with campuses to support public systems by opting for tap over bottled water. Together, we are asking people like you to Think Outside the Bottle by pledging to opt for tap over bottled water. Learn more.
SGA Sustainability Project Group
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.
