About the Green Eagle Program
Green Eagles are employees of the Office of Sustainability paid to learn, conduct outreach, and carry out other projects. Students learn about waste, recycling, and composting; energy and carbon neutrality; water and conservation; local, organic, and fair trade food; and many other topics throughout the school year.
One to two Resident Student Green Eagles are hired to staff each residence hall and work on engaging and educating their peers about sustainability. Keep an eye out for the Green Eagle in your res hall and ask what you can do to help!
Office Green Eagles are typically non-residential upperclassmen and graduate students hired to assist the offices and departments working on the Green Office program. Office Eagles assist with data collection and awareness building among AU staff members.
All Green Eagles are required to choose a year-long personal project to address a sustainability problem they've identified and want to solve or do research about potential sustainability projects. Tangible change has come out of Green Eagle projects in the past including transitioning to trayless dining at the Tenley Campus. Check out this year's Green Eagles under Quick Links to learn more about the students and their projects.
