Campus as a Living Lab Pathway
The purpose of the campus as a living lab pathway is to provide students with practical experience, training, and exposure to a range of projects that increase the sustainability of our campus’s physical operations and systems. The desired outcome is for students to know how to use their hands and conduct applied research to meet actual needs.

The communiversity concept emerges from the SERES Leadership Center in Guatemala, a GSRC community partner. As it manifests in our partnership, the communiversity is a place and set of activities in which scholars and communities together lead the sustainability shift. The purpose of the communiversity pathway is to provide students and youth counterparts in partner communities with practical experience, training, and exposure to activities that strengthen the critical lens on local-global solidarity and deepen understanding of the interdependence of all life. The desired outcome is for youth leaders to move with interpersonal agility, compassion, and equity-oriented systems thinking in any setting in which they are bridging across traditional boundaries (cultural, political, national, sectoral, disciplinary). Read about the communiversity programs GSRC and SERES together piloted in 2015 here and here.
GSRC has no current international communiversity opportunities. For international immersion programs offered through other campus units related to sustainability, see:
GSRC’s current communiversity opportunities focus on building community climate resilience in U.S. domestic settings, especially on the UC Irvine campus and together with community partners in Orange County. Read more about UCI’s Community Resilience Projects to learn how to get involved. Our invitation for collaboration extends broadly to student leaders, staff, faculty, and community members who are engaged in work for racial and social equity and/or sustainability.
Sustainability Co-Curricular Working Group
The UCI Sustainability Co-Curricular Working Group (SCWG) is a diverse group of campus representatives that include students, staff and faculty. SCWG puts together programs and opportunities for students to extend their sustainability education outside the classroom.
Would you like to get involved with UCI’s Sustainability Co-Curricular Working Group? Contact Rachel Harvey at email@example.com.
Trainings offered throughout the year offer students a unique experience to learn outside the classroom.
