Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. Someone else from my office is already an Eco-Ambassador, can I be one too?

A1. Yes, if you are interested in learning new things, then you are welcome to join the program. In addition, we find that it is easier to get things done when you have someone to work with, so we encourage colleagues to join. 

Q2. I am a student, can I join?

A2. PhD students and post-grads are welcome to join as honorary staff members. A few undergraduates are accepted into the program but have slightly different responsibilities (helping out staff in other offices, etc.) Email us if you are an undergraduate interested in this program. Undergraduates should also check out the Eco-Rep program.

Q3. I want to make my office more sustainable but I can’t go to the meetings – do you have any information I can use to learn on my own?

A3. All the materials and presentations from our previous programs are available on our website – you will probably find them useful. You can also schedule an individual meeting with someone from the Office of Sustainability and consult our website. Employees interested in making their offices more sustainable are also encouraged to join the Tufts University Green Office Certification Program.
