SELFsustain History

Each spring, Student Engagement Leadership Forum (SELF) Sustain brings students together from across disciplines and all University of Minnesota campuses to talk about sustainability and their shared interests.

Initiated through the University of Minnesota’s Systemwide Strategic Sustainability Committee, the event is typically a two-day “retreat” with the intention of providing undergraduates the opportunity to share their sustainability efforts, learn about what their peers from other campuses are doing, and build lasting connections with students from other campuses. SELFsustain connects students to one another to share projects ideas and build collaborations. 

The location of SELFsustain rotates between the different UMN campuses, providing students with the opportunity to meet people from their own and other campuses and experience the unique sustainability components of each campus.
