Spartan EcoReps

Spartan EcoReps (formerly Environmental Stewards) are faculty and staff members dedicated to helping MSU achieve its environmental and energy goals by:

  • Engaging their peers in sustainable practices
  • Acting as an ambassador for sustainability on campus
  • Serving as the environmental contact for their unit or department
  • Providing feedback and suggestions to the Sustainability department

As an EcoRep, you will receive a monthly newsletter and occasional emails inviting you to special events and programs. Monthly programming and initiatives provide EcoReps with sustainable strategies to implement in their departments and an opportunity to collaborate with other interested faculty and staff.

Critically thinking about day-to-day activities and how these activities could have an impact on campus, and ultimately the world, increases your competency to be a more effective worker.


If you are interested in becoming a Spartan EcoRep for your department or if you have questions, please contact MSU Sustainability.
