The institute has its roots in UCI’s Student Institute for Sustainability Leadership (SISL). Many SISL alumni have gone on to become key campus leaders in these areas and have shaped their academic pursuits accordingly. With SLICR training happening across multiple UC campuses, a UC-wide cohort of transformative change makers is emerging. We invite you to become part of it.
