Students who apply to SLIP will be grouped into teams of 2-4 people along with a university or community mentor. Mentors will be appointed based on expertise in an aspect of sustainable development and leadership training. Over the course of the academic year (Sept. to April), students will design, implement and evaluate a project or initiative that advances sustainability, with the dual goal of enhancing campus engagement on the SDGs and student skills development. During this process, groups will access development opportunities such as workshops, networking mixers, online resources and guidance from their university/community mentor. Seed funding for the implementation of these initiatives will be provided.
SLIP is open to both graduate and undergraduate students. Participants will receive co-curricular credit.
Students are expected to:
Attend the SDG Summit — an annual training conference designed to empower students through peer-networking and education on sustainable development.
Meet with teams frequently to design, implement and evaluate the community project.
Attend bi-weekly meetings with university/community mentor.

The Sustainability Leadership Innovation Program is funded by the Students Union Quality Money grant.
