Student Leadership in Campus Community Expanded (SLCCE) builds on Year One of the Campus Community Connection pilot, and more specifically on the Student Leadership in Greater College Park Sustainability and Resiliency.  SLCCE will fund graduate assistants and undergraduate hourly to implement parts of at least 60 projects that were developed last year in the municipalities of College Park, Hyattsville, Riverdale Park, University Park, Berwyn Heights and unincorporated Prince George’s communities near the University of Maryland such as Adelphi, Beltsville, Langley Park, and East Riverdale.  SLCCE student leaders will also develop research questions related to the 60 projects for the 12 major schools or colleges of the University of Maryland.
