About Student Chapters

Approximately twenty percent of the TBAEP members are students. Student chapters must be formed and affiliated according to NAEP requirements and guidelines and must have a sponsor on the faculty that serves as the student advisor. There are several active student chapters at local colleges, each with their own leadership and programs.

The student chapter effort provides an opportunity for practicing professionals to invest in our future. We sponsor presentations featuring a day in the life of an EP so that students can get a better understanding of what is in store for them in their environmental careers.

Current Campuses:
  • University of South Florida - Tampa
  • University of South Florida - St Pete
  • Eckerd College
  • University of Tampa
  • Hillsborough Community College - Plant City Campus
  • Stetson
  • St Pete College

Students should seek to join early in their environmental careers so that they can get the most of their membership. Visit the Student page to learn how to make the most of your student membership.


The TBAEP professional chapters Student Chapters Committee assigns a liaison to each of the student chapters. The purpose of the liaison is to mentor the students so that the students grow and become empowered to get connected with the professional chapter while improving the student chapter. The liaison also acts as the point person between the student chapter and TBAEP.

Specific Liaison responsibilities include:
  • Provides guidance on soliciting sponsors
  • Provides guidance on soliciting speakers and panelist for the events
  • Attends the student chapter officer meetings to provide guidance for questions that come up.
  • Updates the student chapter committee/TBAEP professional chapter on student chapter news and needs, as well as encourages the students to do this on their own

Perhaps you are an Alumni or just want to help inspire the next generation. If you are interested filling one of these important liaison positions please email us attbaep@faep-fl.org
