Calling all student leaders! April 7th-8th, the University of Minnesota System will be hosting its annual conference for students involved in sustainability from all five U of M campuses. The event is called Student Engagement Leadership Forum (SELF) Sustain, and will bring students together from across disciplines to talk about sustainability and their shared interests. This year SELFsustain will be hosted by the Twin Cities campus.
Initiated through the University of Minnesota’s Systemwide Strategic Sustainability Committee, the event is a two-day “retreat” with the intention providing undergraduates the opportunity to share their sustainability efforts and to hear what their peers from other campuses are doing. 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 unique sustainability components of each campus.
