Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) frequently partners with other departments and offices to support major service opportunities. The interdepartmental sustainability calendar is the best place to find out about upcoming events and learn how to register. Please check it regularly to stay up to date!
We regularly need service learning students to help with the following tasks:
EH&S participates in these events every Fall Semester:
EH&S participates in these events every Spring Semester:
Additional campus resources for sustainability service projects:
Inspect fire extinguishers, check emergency lights, and help with fire drills. This requires working outdoors.
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
FGCU has several sustainability-themed geocaches hidden around our campus. Earn service learning hours by maintaining and updating the existing geocaches. This entails checking the caches to ensure they are in the appropriate locations, keeping the logs in order, and monitoring web activity. This project requires a student that can work independently and has access to a smart phone. The student must also be able to work outdoors, walk on uneven terrain, stoop, and kneel. Geocaching enthusiast preferred!
Gain experience with social media management software and planning long-term, strategic social media campaigns that elevate our followers’ awareness and safety and sustainability. Prior experience administering social media accounts is preferred.
FGCU has many programs that aim to reduce the amount of single-occupancy car trips to campus. Help promote things like biking, ride sharing, carpooling, car sharing, and taking public transit by encouraging people on campus to take advantage of Wheeli, Zipcar, LeeTran, and South Florida Commuter Services.
