UD Sustainability Reps and Leaders

Become a sustainability leader on campus and beyond.

The Hanley Sustainability Institute (HSI) is excited to announce a new program for students who want to share their passion and experience in sustainability with other students, faculty and staff in furthering HSI’s goal to become a national leader in sustainability education.

The UD Sustainability Representatives and Leaders (UDSRL) program provides experiential learning opportunities for students to contribute to and become integral team members on HSI projects and programming. Opportunities will range from short-term volunteer efforts to selective semester and year-long supported student leader positions in HSI.  At all participation levels, HSI seeks to provide students with ways to act on their passion for a more sustainable world.

See our current HSI student leaders and graduate assistants.

However, I didn't want to let that passion fade and I realized there was an impact I could be having even as an undergrad, by working with HSI on campus.

Networking our Future

We talk a lot about how we think UD perceives sustainability, but we do not have any concrete data to support our claims. So I worked with HSI's Post-Doctoral fellow, Dr. Felix Fernando, to create this survey. We?re hoping to use the results from this survey to advance HSI's efforts in the future.
