EcoAdvisors is a sustainability training and action program. In the fall, EcoAdvisors participate in field trips and educational readings to understand the sustainability landscape on campus while also researching a topic of their choice. In the spring, they execute a project based on the topic they explored in the fall, working to bring meaningful change to campus.
