What is the EcoReps Program?

Want to be a part of a close knit community of student leaders? As an EcoRep, you will move in early to participate in an amazing weekend retreat in Estes Park, which will connect you to other first year students and give you the skills to hit the ground running as a dedicated environmental advocate! Interested EcoReps may also participate in a fully funded spring break service trip, as well as field trips and trainings in Denver, Boulder and more!

Get the on-campus family that you deserve in this unique yearlong leadership opportunity, and learn how to create change at CU-Boulder! Receive training on recycling, sustainability and green living that will enable you to educate your in-hall community and engage in meaningful dialogue with your peers!

Be a leader – Be an EcoRep!

Our Mission
