Student Leadership

The Resident Advisors, Peer Mentors and Student Programming Board all share responsibility for keeping the SLE community engaged, inclusive and successful.  Student leadership is a core component of the Sustainable Living Experience community. As a program, we provide opportunities for participants to develop their leadership skills so that they may be better prepared to take on active roles elsewhere on campus and in their communities beyond graduation.

Student Programming Board

SLE Board members include Peer Mentors and first year students living at Oxford Houses. Students in this leadership role work together to brainstorm and plan SLE programming and events that they want to be a part of. To join the SLE Board, contact sle.staff@umich.edu.

Peer Mentors

Peer mentorship is a core component of the Sustainable Living Experience theme community. Peer mentors are students who have lived with SLE in the past (or engaged in other campus sustainability efforts) and are continuing to bring their skills to the SLE community. They facilitate group dialogues on issues such as environmental justice, coordinate trips to the Campus Farm, assist residents in planning sustainability projects on campus, and more!

Residential Staff

Your Resident Advisors (RAs) are live-in resources for SLE students! The two SLE RAs will be working to create an environment that fosters sustainable community and provides a positive living-learning experience.
