The SOS student leadership consists of one student director and three student interns who work closely with one faculty advisor, several SOS Eco-Reps, a group of SOS Board Members, the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate, and various other students, faculty, and staff at the UW-Eau Claire. The SOS Director maintains general oversight of the commission, manages the Green Fund budget, and heads the weekly SOS Board meetings. Interns likewise take on various responsibilities as the Communication, Events, and Management Interns. The SOS Eco-Reps are students tasked with specific roles in maintaining and/or disseminating new or ongoing projects and programs run by the SOS. Lastly, SOS Board Members are required to attend all weekly meetings in order to discuss and vote on Green Fund allocations and various other SOS activities. All of these positions provide excellent leadership and professional development opportunities for students interested in campus sustainability!
Because the SOS functions through a collaborative model, we encourage the involvement of outside students and other student organizations. Anyone is welcome to attend our weekly SOS Board meetings to find out more. Look on the SOS Homepage for a list of meeting times and locations for the current fiscal year.
