Did you know:

Since the Environmental Ambassador Award was launched in 2001, Salukis have collectively volunteered over 9,000 hours toward environmental initiatives.

The Environmental Ambassador Award recognizes outstanding Salukis who have volunteered at least 30 hours towards environmental initiatives in an academic year. In order to be recognized at the annual Sustainability Celebration on Earth Day (April 22), you must turn in your application by April 15th, 2020.

Feel free to contact the Sustainability Office at sustainability@siu.edu or stop by the Sustainability Hub (located on the first floor of the Student Center) if you have any questions about how to earn hours, log hours, or turn in your form.

Salukis Take Action:

Help us break our new goal of 10,000 total volunteer hours! Find service opportunities at the Center for Service Learning's volunteer portal.
