Sustainability Representatives at UD

Sustainability Reps are a great way for all students from any year or major to volunteer and be part of HSI projects and programming from just a few hours up to a full project depending on your interest and available time. The Sustainability Reps will be an integral part of how HSI accomplishes many of our on and off campus projects and programs. Check out all the Reps opportunities.

  • Campus Sustainability Education
    Our campus sustainability education team is our core group of Sustainability Reps. Lead by our HSI Campus Education Student Leaders, Caroline Shepherd and Marigrace Moses, the Campus Education Sustainability Reps take the lead on reaching out to and educating fellow students on how to be more sustainable as a campus and as an individual.  The Campus Education Reps team meets regularly to brainstorm, plan and deliver AVIATE Pathpoint events, volunteer at information sessions and sustainability events, meet with classes and much more! If you are interested in joining the education team, contact (
  • Kennedy Union Patio Green Roof
    Join HSI in maintaining and continuing to activate the new Kennedy Union Green Roof.  Installed at the beginning of the Fall 2017 semester, the KU Green Roof is now an attractive and welcoming space for the entire UD community. Student volunteers can assist HSI student leaders, Dan Lenz and Claire Roberts in clearing weeds, watering (if needed), performing other seasonal jobs, and brainstorming for how the space can be used in new and creative ways. If you are interested, contact Dan Lenz (, HSI KU Green Roof student project leader.
  • University Waste and Composting
    Join the HSI and UD Facilities Management team that will work with campus partners to expand opportunities to compost on campus. In addition, HSI and FM are piloting worm composting in additional sites around campus, starting with Fitz Hall. More details to come.  All students are welcome to join the team.  If you are interested, contact Naomi Schalle (, HSI Composting Team Student Leader.
  • Campus Sustainability Mapping
    HSI works with UD Facilities Management and other campus partners to develop and implement a new campus sustainability map. Lead by our HSI mapping student leader, Colin McTighe, the mapping team uses desktop and mobile ArcGIS mapping software to collect data and prepare it to share with the campus community and all who would like to know more about a sustainable UD.  If you would like help make and maintain our campus sustainability map, or would like to know more about ArcGIS mapping at UD, contact mapping student leader, Celia Montemurri (
  • Campus Energy Team
    The campus energy team (CET) conducts energy audits on campus buildings, focusing on major energy users like air handlers, cooling units, boilers, and lighting.  The CET also researches how UD can implement renewable energy and also improve energy efficiency in new and innovative ways. The CET works with facilities management to guide their audit and tracking work and and the Green Revolving Fund to implement many of their proposals. If you are interested in learning more about the CET and helping collect energy data on campus, contact Sophia Palmer (
