What is the SERC Membership Program?

SERC Membership was piloted in Fall 2016, with the goal of providing individual students the opportunity to help build a collaborative, inclusive student community around sustainability. We aim to preserve institutional memory around environmental projects, build a more cohesive community, and get new students plugged in to existing events. Members will have access to various membership benefits, including structured volunteer opportunities, project and event management experience, leadership development, and social events. Members will be able to join different committees led by SERC staff members based on their skills and interests. This is an opportunity to work with other like-minded individuals to research & compile resources, get hands-on experience with project management and plan events for the environmental community.  The SERC Membership program has grown exponentially in the recent years and we are so excited to continue to offer this program.

In the Fall of 2019, the SERC Membership Program secured a mini-grant from The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF). The SERC Membership Program will continue expand its program and event offerings, community resources, and environmental opportunities all thanks to this funding!
