Key Objective: 6.3 Environmental Leadership Program
The iCAP 2020, objective 6.3 is: “Launch an undergraduate Environmental Leadership Program (ELP) that includes two week-long residential intensives, pre-professional workshops, visiting speakers, and field trips to Springfield and Washington, D.C.” The responsible campus unit for championing this objective is iSEE. Progress is tracked in the iCAP Portal project page for the Environmental Leadership Program (ELP).
While we strive to integrate sustainability into curricular courses, we also hope to create opportunities for student engagement with energy and the environment outside the classroom. One example is the proposed Environmental Leadership Program (ELP). The ELP is focused on advanced undergraduate students, and will take the form of two week-long immersive training workshops held on campus (fall) and in Washington, D.C. (spring), in addition to pre-professional seminars and environmental leadership training.
The first closing banquet of the ELP organized by the Institue for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) took place at the Illini Union on March 17, 2022.
