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. Opportunities will be posted to our UDSRL website with full description and contact information. Positions will include a variety of types of skills and range from those happening on a specific day/time to those with a more flexible project window. For the majority of opportunities, no experience will be required. We are excited to work with and train students in helping us accomplish our work in HSI.  

Volunteer as a Sustainability Rep and help UD become more sustainable:

  • Kennedy Union Patio Green Roof Team - New for FALL 2017
    Next week, the Hanley Sustainability Institute will be working with facilities management and Enterprise Roofing to install a green roof on the KU Patio and we need your help! Volunteers will be needed throughout most of next week on Sept. 5, 6, 7 and 9.   This is an incredible opportunity to learn about sustainability and to leave your mark on campus.
    • Please use the link below to sign up:
      Note that there are separate sheets for every day of volunteering.
    • Volunteers will help unload and install the vegetative trays that will become the green roof and remove old pavers from the patio. Enter through Torch Lounge before each shift for a brief safety training. Volunteers are required to wear closed-toe shoes, preferably boots. Work gloves and hard hats will be provided. Wear something that can get dirty. Meals or snacks will be provided during each work shift. UD Marketing will be photographing and filming during construction so show off your school pride by wearing a Dayton shirt. Let's build a green roof!
    Join the HSI and UD Facilities Management team that will work with UD Dining Services to bring all organic, compostable waste from Kennedy Union to the University's new composting facility on a daily basis. More details to come. All students are welcome to join the team. Contact:
