Student Initiatives

Barnard EcoReps is now Barnard ROOTS

Barnard ROOTS was born when Barnard EcoReps and Barnard Environmentalists united forces in fall 2015. We take on environmental initiatives on and around campus. Barnard ROOTS works on a range of projects, so you can get involved in the work that most interests you--whether that's running big campus events like the Green Sale, hosting discussions and speakers at Sustainable Suppers, or planting in a plot in Riverside Park.

Sustainable Initiative Consulting Board

Mission: The Sustainability Initiative Consulting Board (SICB) serves as the means by which students actively research and assess campus sustainability to maintain and/or improve this social commitment. It acts as a liaison between the student body and administration in these efforts. This committee is responsible for developing policies and building infrastructure to increase campus sustainability including but not limited to waste reduction, energy consumption, and water conservation. 

Membership: The committee is comprised of appointed students.
