Sustainability Award Nominations Open
Oct 15 all-day

Do you know someone who is passionate about sustainability? Do they go above and beyond to recycle or teach others how to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle? Nominate them for a Residence Life Sustainability Award!

Responses will be reviewed by the Residence Life Sustainability Committee and winners will be announced at the 6th Annual Sustainability Dinner.

1) Green Tradition
This award is given to the student who exhibits the most enthusiasm for sustainability by volunteering for events, aiding with educational events for residents in the Residence Halls and have gone above and beyond to make sustainability an Aggie tradition.

2) Waste Reduction
Awarded to the student who has been a leader for recycling in the Residence Halls through educational outreach and encouraging their fellow students to recycle

3) Creative Innovator
This student developed creative and ground-breaking approaches to addressing sustainability issues like recycling, student engagement, and energy conservation in the residence halls.

4) Friend of Sustainability
Awarded to a Residence Life staff member who aids with sustainability. This individual went above and beyond to improve sustainability in the TAMU Residence Halls and who served as an example of sustainability to our residents. Staff members can apply, be nominated by students, or be nominated by the Sustainability Awards Committee.

5) Green Custodial
Students nominate individual custodians in their halls, or anywhere on campus, who go above and beyond for recycling. The individual with the most nominations is not necessarily guaranteed to win. In other words, custodians who service large halls like Hullabaloo do not have an advantage over the custodians from Appelt. Submissions will be judged by who can provide the most compelling examples of the nominee contributing to recycling. A custodian from each area can win this award.

AAUW Start Smart Workshop
Oct 16 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

The Texas A&M University Women’s Resource Center, Career Center, and Money Education Center invite you to attend one of our salary negotiation workshops.

According to research done by the American Association of University Women (AAUW), women working full time in the United States are typically paid just 80 percent of what men are paid. Moreover, only about 7 percent of women attempt to negotiate for a higher salary in their first job, compared to 57 percent of men.

Research also suggests that recent college graduates are unlikely to negotiate for their salaries. A 2015 article cited by the Washington Post indicated that out of almost 8,000 new college graduates surveyed, only 38 percent negotiated for their salary.

To ensure that all Texas A&M students are prepared to negotiate a fair salary upon graduation, we are offering AAUW Start Smart and AAUW Work Smart Salary Negotiation Workshops.

AAUW Start Smart and AAUW Work Smart Salary Negotiation Workshops teach participants how to negotiate for a fair salary. In every two-hour workshop, participants gain confidence in their negotiation styles through facilitated discussion and role-play, and learn:

  1. How to identify and articulate their personal value.
  2. How to develop an arsenal of persuasive response and other negotiation strategies.
  3. How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits.
    Information on the wage gap, including its long-term consequences.

The AAUW Start Smart Workshop is ideal for students who are preparing to enter the professional job force for the first time. In addition to the skills listed above, students learn how to research the cost of living in the location where they plan to live and how to build a basic budget, which informs their salary ask.

The AAUW Work Smart Workshop is better suited to students who may have already been in the workforce and have experience with personal budgeting. This workshop dives deeper into salary negotiation, including how to negotiate raises with your supervisor.

We recommend that students choose to attend an AAUW Start Smart Workshop or an AAUW Work Smart Workshop 3-4 months before they plan to start their post-graduate job search. Each workshop is limited to 40 participants. Pre-registration is required. All Texas A&M University students are welcome to attend AAUW Smart Start and AAUW Work Smart Workshops regardless of gender identity.

Fall 2019 Start Smart Workshops:

  • Thursday, September 19 | 5:30 – 7:30pm | Rudder Tower, Room 701
  • Wednesday, October 16 | 5:30 – 7:30pm | Rudder Tower, Room 707
