Student Leadership (SL) in Greater College Park Community Sustainability and Resiliency is a project that will accelerate undergraduate and graduate student leadership in the development and implementation of sustainability and resiliency projects on campus and in the communities surrounding the University.  Engaged students will help design trans-disciplinary project strategies that respond to needs of incorporated and unincorporated communities of Prince George’s County. The projects will self-identify areas of interest in resiliency, economic, environmental, and social wellbeing associated with the Connected Campus Community pilot project. SL represents a significant expansion of the National Center for Smart Growth’s work in sustainability and will allow the Center to respond to a broad spectrum of community needs.
