We can't do it alone!

Through OSU's Sustainability Advocate program, faculty and staff pledge to act as sustainability contacts within their campus unit by sharing information and training opportunities, networking with fellow Advocates, and promoting sustainability-related events.  Students are eligible to join if they are long-term student employees of a campus unit.

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 one quarterly gathering per year (lunch provided) with brief presentations and casual, facilitated discussions on sustainability related issues like student engagement, policy development and sustainability measurement. 

And we need your help!

Register to become a Sustainability Advocate

Or check in with the Advocate for your campus unit, listed below.  Advocates agree to attend at least one meeting per year and help connect the Advocate's unit with the OSU Sustainability Office.  Completed forms should be sent to 130 Oak Creek Building, scanned and emailed to us, or completed via DocuSign.
