Sustainability Ambassadors are student peer educators for sustainability. The mission of the Sustainability Ambassadors program is to support the development of sustainable behaviors among the student population at Wake Forest University.

Through outreach activities, campaign development, event planning, sustainability assessments, and presentations, Sustainability Ambassadors are able to reach Wake students in a variety of settings. They help fulfill the Office’s mission of empowering others to assume leadership roles in sustainability.

Training occurs in the form of a two-credit undergraduate course: ENV 301A – Leadership for Sustainability. If you are unable to register for the course but still want to get involved, please reach out.

If you have any questions or if you would like to invite a Sustainability Ambassador to give a presentation or conduct outreach, please contact us at
