Green Ambassadors Program

Green Ambassadors Program  for SUNY Cortland Faculty and Staff

The SUNY Cortland Green Ambassadors Program is designed to support a more sustainable campus by involving faculty and staff representatives to engage in generating new ideas, establishing new partnerships, and sharing information about sustainable practices both at work and home.

Green Ambassador meetings are held 1-2 times each semester. These meetings will include sessions on campus sustainability initiatives, tours of sustainable features on campus and in the community, and opportunities to discuss ideas and collaborate on solutions to the challenges we face on campus and in the surrounding community.

  • gain access to a variety of sustainability tools and resources
  • play a key role in shaping the campus and workplace environment
  • provide a meaningful service to the College
