Do you have an interest in helping Tufts shape its energy, water and waste policies and plans? Would you like to be involved in a high-level committee to determine new campus sustainability goals?

The Sustainability Council is starting up this fall at Tufts University and is looking for undergraduate and graduate student representatives for the main council and each of the three working groups (water, waste and energy/emissions).

The new groups will be comprised of one undergraduate and one graduate student each, plus a select number of faculty and staff with appropriate expertise. The council will focus on reviewing existing goals, creating new ones and developing plans for moving forward to make Tufts’ campuses more environmentally sustainable.

While we don’t know for sure what the time commitment will be, expect to commit about 5-8 hours a month.

If you are interested in being a student representative on one of these committees, please write a short 200 word letter of interest explaining why you are interested and what knowledge or skills you will bring to the group. You may attach a resume if you would like, but it is not necessary. Email your application by Dec 1st to
