The Sustainability Action Program (SAP) is focused on first years and is dedicated to enabling YOU to become an effective change agent. In SAP, you will get a chance to meet and interact with other first years, upperclass students and staff working on sustainability projects on campus.

In a series of hands-on design thinking workshops and in-person community building events, the program will orient you within the Sustainability community at Dartmouth and introduce you to the tenets of sustainability while working with other FIRST YEARS!

Example Events:

  • Socially Distant Socials w/ Sustainability Trivia

  • Design Thinking Workshops and Certification Course!

  • Power Plant Tour

  • Nathan's Garden Adventure

  • Trips to the Organic Farm

  • Volunteering with Local Food Organization

In the fall, we will focus on learning about what has already been done, lessons learned trying to make Dartmouth more sustainable and we will train you to be change makers by equipping you with tools such as design thinking, systems thinking, and behavior change theory. Then during the Winter and Spring YOU (and a team of fellow SAPlings) will design and implement mini-projects that help make Dartmouth even greener (get it? Big Green?). Apply for SAP below!

** No sustainability experience needed, come learn and grow with us**
** If you're a sustainability PRO, come learn how to get stuff done here at Dartmouth, meet people and start changing the world today!**


Applications are due FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 23RD!
