Summer Institute for Sustainability Leadership (SISL) 2013
In 2013, The Global Sustainability Resource Center (GSRC), in collaboration with UCI Student Affairs and The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF), hosted the first annual SISL from July 21 to July 23. We had more than 60 applicants for the 20 SISL participant spots, and more than 30 applications for the six mentor positions. Highlights of the program included: a trip to Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano, an informal Q&A with global leaders from the Empowering Sustainability Conference, a conversation with UCI Chancellor Michael Drake, and a Real Food Reception, sponsored by Hospitality & Dining, where students presented and networked with campus administrators, faculty, and global leaders who work on issues of sustainability.
