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.

Hey everyone, I'm Vince and I'm your E-force co-chair this year. I'm a sophomore studying social work and psychology here at IU and this is my second year in the LLC. I'm from Elkhart, Indiana and I'm one of 10 kids. My hobbies include hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities. My dream job is to work with at-risk youth, or in a children's home. You can usually find me at home binge-watching Netflix or in the flounge doing homework. I can be reached via email at ekwise@iu.edu.
