Student Education Programs with the Center for Creativity
Description: Student directed activities which will incorporate sustainable practices/materials in a tangible creation. Art, crafts, and goods can be produced using a multitude of waste materials. Students who engage in this project should find a material and method of reuse which interests them and present it to the campus community through a class or workshop. The creativity center is the perfect place to experiment with materials and potentially host a class.
Description: A program to allow students to come up with eco-friendly ideas and provides them with resources to complete their projects. Eco-leaders also act as educators for new students on topics of sustainability and the environment. Per Colorado State’s Eco Leaders program; “Eco Leaders are peer educators in the residence halls and Aggie Village apartments who help raise awareness about sustainability issues and encourage environmentally-responsible behaviors throughout the academic year”
