We can't do it alone!

Since 2010, OSU's Sustainability Advocates program has provided ways for employees to serve as sustainability contacts within their campus units.  Advocates share information and training opportunities, network with peers, and promote sustainability-related actions and events to their units and to students. 

Being an Advocate is a fun way to get engaged in a community of employee peers who are informed of and provide feedback on sustainability related programs.

Advocates are asked to attend at least two quarterly gatherings per year (lunch provided) with brief presentations and casual, facilitated discussions on sustainability related issues like student engagement, policy development and sustainability assessment.  Advocates also help connect their unit with the OSU Sustainability Office.

And we need your help!

Check below to see if your campus unit is listed.  If not, or if your Advocate has moved on, contact us about becoming a Sustainability Advocate! You may also suggest someone else to serve and we can reach out to them.
