REP Programming

Student REP employees actively involve their fellow peers in engaging events, competitions, and campaigns that provide valuable knowledge on a wide range of topics, such as energy conservation. REPs are integral players in advancing campus sustainability initiatives. Join us as we delve into the cornerstones of REP Programming below.

Educational Campaigns

  • REP educational campaigns aim to educate students on topics, such as:
      • Connecting student campus sustainability resources
      • Understanding proper water disposal and recycling
      • Encouraging efficient use of heat in dorms
      • Promoting sustainable living tips


  • REPs serve as a trusted student connection to sustainability in their residential communities. They build on their existing relationships with peers in their house or dorm to encourage sustainable behavior change.

Campus Sustainability Projects

  • REPs work in teams to tackle campus sustainability goals by working on projects that collaborate with a wide range of campus staff and stakeholders. Projects have included:
        • FAS Residential Water Anomalies Investigation and Analysis
        • FAS Residential Waste Signage and Best Practices Evaluation
        • Sustainable FAS Building Operations: A Vendor Survey
        • Sustainable Period Project: Plumbing Risk Mitigation & Implementation


  • These learning opportunities equip REPs with the leadership, communication, and project management skills to effectively promote sustainability within their communities.

Green Cup Competition

  • The Green Cup is an annual sustainability competition among House and Yard communities, providing a chance to secure $650 in funding.
  • House members’ active participation in REP programming is recorded and assessed throughout the academic year, with evaluations conducted at the end of each campaign.
  • Houses earn points for the Green Cup based on their level of engagement with the community.
  • At the end of the semester, the House with the highest number of points emerges as the winner.
  • REPs play a crucial role in motivating their peers to participate in REP activities, thereby improving their House’s position in the Green Cup competition.
