Eco-Rep Program

Eco-Rep Program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst

The UMass Amherst Eco-Rep Program is focused on working toward environmental literacy and leadership both within the program and on the campus at large. This is an academic course open to students of all interests and education levels; it is especially encouraged to those who wish to gain or expand their knowledge in sustainability and environmental literacy. Eco-Reps build a foundational knowledge surrounding issues of sustainability and explore how best to raise awareness about these issues amongst their peers. Focusing on the role and impact of the individual, Eco-Reps work to promote environmentally responsible behavior in the campus community.

Mission Statement:

The mission of the Eco-Rep Program is to foster environmental literacy within the campus community and translate that new understanding into more sustainable behavior.
