Working Groups are often referred to as the heart of a PIRG. They are semi-autonomous groups of students and community members who organize around specific issues of environmental and social justice. These groups operate on a consensus-based decision making model, which aims to reduce as much as possible the coercive elements often times present in other decision making models.
Upon approved application, a Working Group will receive:
- Support and funding of up to $500 per semester,
- Space on the RPIRG webpage,
- Access to office resources, such as photocopying and the button maker,
- Networking access, and
- The ability to apply for Project/Event funding.
Do you have an idea for a working group? RPIRG has yearly funds available for working groups. If you are interested in forming a Working Group, fill out the Working Group Application found HERE and bring it to the RPIRG office (Riddell Centre, Room 222), where the RPIRG staff would be happy to assist you in making your application a successful one! You may also save paper by completing the editable form and sending by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
