During the school year, the EC has a full-time interim coordinator, Rachel Landis, and a program coordinator, Alex Brooks who assist student teams that coordinate and run all of our projects and programs. Students in each team set their own goals for the semester, decide on strategies, and divide up work among themselves.
Staff teams for the 2012-2013 school year include:
Media and Communications – This team keeps the campus and community updated on environmental news by producing the EC’s weekly radio program Making Waves, running a blog, writing articles for the Independent, and organizing other media projects.
Zero-Waste – This team works to move Fort Lewis toward becoming a zero-waste campus. They run the EC laser and ink jet recycling program, are working toward implementing composting for campus dining, hold a Free Store every week, and supports the city and county as they move toward zero-waste.
Campus Sustainability – This team works to help implement Fort Lewis College's sustainability commitments. Currently, they are explore larger picture sustainability projects like helping building systems for increased local, sustainable food on campus.
Local Food – The food team runs the EC’s demonstration organic garden and greenhouse and works on education the community on how to produce fresh, locally-produced, and organic food.
Weekly staff meetings, lunches, and social events bring everyone connected with EC together and help build a stronger community.
