What is a Classroom Advocate? How do I become one?
Classroom Advocacy is a new program for Green Team members. Our Classroom Advocates are the key spokespeople for the Green Team and are responsible for disseminating information to the campus community about upcoming events related to sustainability, as well as for making faculty and students aware of best practices for greening their classroom. In turn, Classroom Advocates are responsible for getting feedback from their professors and peers about what they see as pressing concerns for sustainability on our campus, and then sharing it at the Green Team meetings.
If you would like to become a Classroom Advocate please print out (on recycled or single-sided & re-used paper) the Classroom Advocate Contract, and go over it with each of your professors during their office hours and have them, as well as yourself, sign the contract, then, turn it into one of the Officers or Committee Chairs at the next Green Team event. Service Points are awarded for fulfilling the contractual agreement throughout the quarter. Please also check out the Footprint Reduction Strategies document as a reference for you, your classmates, and your professors. Good Luck!
