Join the Program
Applications to join the Sustainable Carolina Leadership Program in Fall 2022 will be accepted in late Spring.
Students in Sustainable Carolina work on one of six project teams to plan events and raise awareness of sustainability issues on campus and in the community all while receiving one-on-one leadership coaching from our staff. From teaching local elementary school children about sustainability to promoting zero waste initiatives on campus to leading volunteers in the Sustainable Carolina Garden and more, we have an opportunity for every interest.
Why Join the Program
Students in the SCLP develop leadership skills through hands-on, practical experiences. Regardless of their major, all students develop an understanding of how sustainability relates to their career and educational goals. These experiences help increase employability after graduation.
The leadership program gives students the opportunity to complete the requirements for Graduation with Leadership Distinction (link to GLD on USCConnect website), whatever their discipline or interests.
Students in SCLP participate in one-on-one coaching with staff members where they set goals, discuss their progress and plan for life after graduation.
Sustainable Carolina helped me combine my two loves into a career! Now I realize how to work for sustainable companies in my field.”
