Environmental Force (E-Force)

E-Force is at the heart of sustainability at Collins. This group invites residents, staff, faculty, and community members to come together to offer creative ways to further campus environmental efforts. From composting to recycling, scent sachets to soap, round-table discussions to environmentally themed field trips, educational workshops to hikes in the woods, and energy-saving programs (including spearheading the IU Energy Challenge), E-Force values student-driven projects aimed at sparking sustainable habits at a pivotal time in young people’s lives, and fostering a community with such shared goals.

Hi! I’m Darby Tassell and I am a sophomore majoring in Biology with a concentration in Integrative and Organismal Biology. I am primarily focused on entomology, so I spend a lot of time searching for bugs but my other hobbies include solving crosswords, playing piano, and creating self-indulgent artwork. I love nature, especially the icky parts of it, so conservation for me means protecting the animals and other organisms that aren’t the most popular. Let me know about any sustainability initiatives you’d like to start, and always let me know if you see a cool/horrifying bug.

Hello! I'm Brenna Callan, a junior majoring in Environmental Studies and Sustainability with an honors certificate in the LAMP program. I've come to Indiana from Texas and absolutely love spending time hammocking in Dunn Meadow, quoting Star Wars, and exploring the various restaurants in Bloomington. My passions revolve around the earth, ranging from educating others about the environment to expressing nature in art, so I am extremely excited to be a Co-director of E-force! I've been an active member of Collins since my freshman year, so please don't hesitate to come to me with any questions!
