ee360 is an initiative of the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) that supports innovative environmental education across the country. Through a cooperative agreement with U.S. EPA, NAAEE along with seven partner organizations is leading an ambitious five-year initiative to prepare a diverse cadre of environmental education leaders to increase environmental literacy and EE programming.

- Provide marketing and communications support to enhance networking among current/future AUNE students.
- Cultivate social marketing presence of AUNE ee360 activities and EE programming.
- Highlight current EE student and graduate accomplishments for web publication.
- Other duties as identified in collaboration with the EE faculty and ee360 Antioch team members to ensure completion of ee 360 Year 3 deliverables and support for AUNE’s EE programming (e.g., literature reviews, represent program externally, office work, program reports, etc.)
