Student Education & Engagement

Students are an essential part of the driving force behind sustainability efforts in the residential and dining halls. Environmental education for students is core to RSSP’s sustainability efforts.

  • Global Environmental Theme House (GETH) is a housing themed program that provides a small community experience for those interested in environmental issues. 
  • 155 hours spent in the residential halls and dining halls on peer-to-peer sustainability education each academic year. 
  • 66 student- run sustainability events took place in the residential halls and dining halls during the 2019-2020 academic year through the Housing & Dining Sustainability Advocates (HADSA) Program.  
  • 50 residents are mentored annually through the Housing & Dining Sustainability Internship Program.
