Eco-reps on the case

The LU Eco-Representatives (Eco-Reps) program was established by students two summers ago to teach students residing on campus how to live more sustainably. As part of the Eco-Reps initiative, the University has established a new course entitled Sustainability in Action. Lauren Zell ’12, environmental engineering major and coordinator of the Eco-Reps program, says students in the class decide what they want to learn about. “Student leaders come up with assignments for the course, and the students get to choose what to work on,” says Zell. “It’s ever-changing.” A goal of the course is to teach Eco-Reps about sustainability so they, in turn, can teach other students about being more environmentally active.
