UCGreen Seeks Sustainability Fellows

The Office of Sustainability’s UCGreen program is currently recruiting for a number of positions being vacated by graduating seniors who are Sustainability Fellows.

UCGreen FellowsThe Sustainability Fellows program has been running for three years. The Office of Sustainability (OS) has worked with more than 25 student Fellows during that time, creating and running great programming to benefit the Ursinus community. Some of the Fellows programs are:

  • The Organic Farm (including campus farm stands and a stand at the Collegeville Farmers’ Market)
  • UCBikeshare (featuring group bike rides and mechanic nights)
  • Real Food Challenge (encouraging the inclusion of more healthy-food choices in the dining hall)
  • Move-In (a recycling program during the fall campus move-in period)
  • Move-Out (the upcoming trash-to-treasure event that takes place during exams through Commencement)
  • EcoReps (a program for getting students involved on campus)
  • Recyclemania (the national recycling competition)
  • Mock Energy Bills (educating our Main Street house students about how much energy is used in their houses)
  • Green Living Certification (encouraging sustainable living on campus)

The Sustainability Fellows come from a myriad of disciplines to work in a collaborative and supportive environment with each other and staff members in the OS. Fellows’ projects address economic, environmental and social bottom lines on campus through civic engagement, community participation, and hands-on education. The program supports students who are interested in taking their passion for sustainability to the next level: from a bystander or participant to a sustainability leader and educator on campus. Fellows also participate in other campus sustainability events, including Sustainability Week in the fall and Earth Day in the spring.
