About the Initiative

<aside> 📍 APRIL 22-24, 2022, Luskin Conference Center


The Student Leadership Institute for Climate Resilience (SLICR) at UCLA is a weekend-long overnight retreat that provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to expand upon their knowledge of environmental, social, and economic sustainability and provide them with the knowledge and skills to turn their passions into action. SLICR is designed to enable students to understand basic and complex concepts of sustainability and community resilience, support their identity exploration and development, and learn how to engage in leadership for positive social change. This year, SLICR will be back in person!

This program is centered around building community and finding support from your fellow peers. You will be placed in small groups facilitated by student coordinators trained to deliver this content and to support you throughout the weekend. Our planning team is focused on being able to provide a critical learning experience while simultaneously having fun. We are really excited to welcome you to this year’s cohort!

Funding for SLICR 2022 was provided by The Green Initiative Fund (s/o our besties TGIF 🌱)!
