Summer Programs

Although the idea of doing absolutely nothing during summer break is tempting, leadership never rests! There is as much to learn as a leader outside the classroom as there is inside one, so even though classes are over, the Center for Leadership Development is involved with two excellent summer programs that help students to develop their leadership skills during the warm-weather months!


PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies Green Team Program

The PSEG ISS Green Teams are transdisciplinary teams of five students coming from different majors are hosted by organizations to address important sustainability issues; such as achieving zero waste, improving energy efficiency, marketing sustainability practices, and reporting in the global reporting initiative (GRI) format.  At the end of the program, students will present their final projects to all participating organizations, staff, and the general public. The program is based on 17 goals of sustainability in relation to the sustainable development agenda of the United Nations.
