2. Smarter Lunchroom Movement Volunteer Opportunity
The University of Arizona Nutrition Network (UANN) will be piloting an evaluation project starting next semester that will seek to increase fruit and vegetable (F&V) selection and consumption among four middle schools in Tucson. The project will be using the principles of Behavioral Economics via the Smarter Lunchroom Movement to gently nudge middle school students to select and consume F&V from their salad bars. Please check out the hyperlinks to learn more about the UANN and the Smarter Lunchrooms Movement. This pilot project will focus only on highlighting the salad bar, which is one of the eight strategies of the Smarter Lunchrooms Movement. Highlighting the salad bar would include creating signs and posters, developing creative names for the F&V items in the salad bar, hosting taste tests, and moving the salad bar in an optimal location in the cafeteria.
Potential Tasks as Volunteers:
We are looking for at least 15 dedicated volunteers to support our project throughout the spring 2018 semester (January through May on a first come, first serve basis). As one of the volunteers, you will be assisting to do the following:
· Complete the CITI Training (Online – Free)
· Work hands-on with middle school student groups such as the Student Wellness Advocacy team (SWAT), cooking club students, student councils, and other student-led groups. You will be helping middle school students make signs and posters, plan and hold taste test activities during lunch time, think of ways to get their peers to go to the cafeteria, and make creative names for the F&V items in the salad bars.
· Conduct interviews with cafeteria staff.
· Conduct qualitative “before” and “after” observations of the cafeteria.
We are looking for students who will be able to commit to volunteering at least 2 hours per week or 10-15 hours per month.

Design Thinking Challenge
Are you passionate about environmental sustainability, improving communities, and creating change?
If so, you may be interested in our 2018 Design Thinking Challenge - Accelerating Change: From Consuming to Conserving.
The purpose of the challenge is to raise awareness of energy consumption on campus and propose ideas to change the status quo. On a campus as large as ours, this sounds like a good idea, right?
The Spring 2018 Challenge- Accelerating Change: From Consuming to Conserving
1. You don’t have to participate in this challenge alone. You will work collaboratively in a multi-disciplinary team of your peers to propose innovative solutions using the design thinking process. You can bring your own team or join a team when you register.
2. Each team works with a mentor to support them in creative problem-solving, including pitching ideas to clients, judges, and potential employers, creating and testing prototypes.
3. Teams will compete for cash prizes and the opportunity to see their ideas implemented.
4. There is no cost to participate. All majors are welcome.
Why participate in the Challenge?
Most employers want to see a college graduate who has experience working on a team and solving complex problems. This Design Thinking Challenge will give you an opportunity to learn and practice these essential skills and apply them to creating change around energy consumption on our campus.
Upon completion, you will earn an engaged learning notation on your academic transcript to highlight in your resume.
