Sustainability Community Information
The 2013-2014 academic year marks the beginning of the second year since the sustainability community has moved to the modular housing neighborhood. With only 12 available spaces, living in this community is surely a unique opportunity. Individuals will work closely with the RAD staff to create an eco-minded community. Students selected will have an exciting experience testing new sustainable-living retrofits and showcasing the upgrades for campus guests.
Only students who have reached sophomore status or higher will be considered for placement in this community. Applicants should be prepared to live with someone who may identify with a gender different from their own. Applicants should have experience living a low-impact lifestyle by regularly recycling, composting, and conserving water, heat, and electricity.
- Attend the Sustainability Community retreat during Orientation Week and winter renewal at the beginning of winter quarter.
- Open Houses
- Host quarterly open house events (Note: costs of open houses will be covered by RAD Services)
- Provide tours of your living space to campus and community guests during open houses.
- Formal: participate in requests for formal feedback (i.e. surveys, evaluations, focus groups, etc.)
- Informal: respond to questions from RAD staff (students and full-time) about the conditions of your space and provide constructive feedback on ways the space can be improved. Please seek out RAD staff when you have ideas, thoughts, and comments.
- As a community, partner with RAD and with your resident assistant to plan educational, social, and service programs for the residential community and your community.
- Our goal of creating additional eco-friendly MOD-units depends on residents creating and maintaining active relationships with fellow community members as well as RAD Services staff. With on-going input, effective communication, and active participation, we can keep momentum for sustainability projects going for future residents.
