A new sustainability initiative at DePauw University has been selected as a 2011 winner of the Ball Brothers Foundation Venture Fund competitive grant program.
The $15,000 award will be used at DePauw to institute a first-of-its-kind program at an Indiana college.
The program will place two student “Eco Reps” in each first-year residence hall to connect individual behaviors to environmental stewardship, promote environmentally-sound living, and act as liaisons to the greater DePauw and Greencastle communities.
DePauw is one of five Indiana independent colleges selected as recipients of the 2011 grants, which provide seed funding for start-up initiatives to stimulate creativity and innovation and foster competition and collaboration among the state’s 31 independent campuses.
