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.
