UC Presidential Carbon Neutrality Student Fellows
Call for Applications
The University of California, a national leader in sustainability, has pledged to become carbon neutral by 2025, becoming the first major university to accomplish this achievement. To help UC reach this ambitious goal, UCLA will select four UC Presidential Carbon Neutrality Engagement and Communications Fellows.
The team of four student fellows will work with the UCLA Sustainability Office as well as other faculty, staff and administrators to communicate UCLA and UC-wide sustainability goals and programs to undergraduate and graduate students across campus. The team will assess existing programs and efforts, improve communication to the student body about sustainability and carbon neutrality goals, and enable and empower students to get involved and provide feedback.
In addition to the focus on UCLA, each fellow will participate in a UC system-wide discussion and communication process in collaboration with student representatives on the UC Global Climate Leadership Council (GCLC). Fellows will regularly contribute to the GCLC Student Blog and other student engagement communication platforms. Fellows will also be expected to attend a networking and collective visioning event at the California Higher Education Sustainability Conference which will be held at San Francisco State University July 20-24, 2015 (pending additional funding).
