Apply to be an EcoAmbassador for Spring 2012!

December 20, 2011

Still looking for a few credits to round out your schedule? Have an interest in sustainability? Then apply to be an EcoAmbassador! The deadline to apply is Sunday, January 8, 2012. The EcoAmbassador class is a one credit, directed independent study course. Students spend 5 hours per week working on a sustainability related project, and produce a 5 page final paper and a short Power Point presentation at the end of the semester. Students also attend monthly meetings with the class instructor and their fellow EcoAmbassadors. Previous EcoAmbassadors have worked on a tennis shoe recycling project, mapping fisheries using GIS, improving transportation on campus, writing articles for the COS blog, and more. Spring 2012 EcoAmbassadors will be helping to plan Earth Week, working on getting W&M certified as a bike friendly campus, mapping campus features using GIS for Facilities Management, and working on Swem Library’s sustainability website.
