The Eco Facilitators are Hiring

The Sustainability Office is looking for a group of 9-16 students (preference for freshmen and sophomores) with a range of environmental and non-environmental interests and backgrounds to join the 2021-22 Eco Facilitator program! EFs work to provide students with the tools, education, and encouragement necessary to develop sustainable living practices, as well to encourage a sense of environmental consciousness and social responsibility on campus, regardless of prior sustainability knowledge.

In Spring 2021, hired EFs will enroll in a semester-long student forum focused on learning about sustainability at Wesleyan, connecting environmental issues on campus to broader social injustices, and developing effective strategies to encourage sustainable practices. Throughout the 2021-22 school year, EFs will be paid to take out compost in their assigned dorm and conduct sustainability-related projects across campus. Working as an Eco Facilitator is a great opportunity to gain leadership skills and take part in building a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive campus community.
