Staff Ambassadors

Our campus contains approximately 1,000,000 square feet of building space.... and we can't be an educational resource everywhere. Join our Staff Ambassador team to help us advance and pioneer sustainability initiatives here at Saint Mary's College.

In support of the College's Strategic Plan (Goal 3A) to "raise the visibility of how the campus community can support sustainability efforts", the Sustainability Staff Ambassadors aim to learn, engage and activate sustainability best practices in their respective workplaces and for most, at home.

Spending two hours a month on this service to the College, Staff Ambassadors come together for a communal gathering on a sustainability topic and then complete small tasks around the office in support of sustainability initiatives. Learning and community will be key to the program's success.
