Student Engagement & Leadership Forum for Sustainability


Minnesota word cloud self sustain

Initiated through the University of Minnesota’s Systemwide Strategic Sustainability Committee, the event is a two-day conference/retreat with the intention of providing undergraduates the opportunity to share their sustainability efforts, learn about what their peers from other campuses are doing, and build lasting connections with students from other campuses. SELFsustain connects students to one another to share project ideas and build collaborations.

The location of SELFsustain rotates between the different UMN campuses, providing students with the opportunity to meet people from their own and other campuses and experience the unique sustainability components of each campus.
