Student leadership is a core component of the Sustainable Living Experience community. As a program, we provide opportunities for participants to develop inclusive leadership skills so that they may be better prepared to take on active roles elsewhere on campus and in their communities beyond graduation.
SLE Peers are students who have lived with SLE in the past and are continuing to bring their skills to the SLE community. They acts as mentors and resources for first year students, facilitate group dialogues on issues such as environmental justice, coordinate trips to the Campus Farm, assist residents in planning sustainability projects and more!
Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS) is a national organization with chapters around the country that welcomes undergraduate and graduate students of all backgrounds in agriculture, natural resources, and related sciences. MANRRS functions as a social and academic affinity group for students who identify as underrepresented in environmental sciences such as biology, health, sustainability and engineering. U-M chapter members have valuable networking opportunties, and are encouraged to participate in regional and national MANRRS competitions in their field. Benefits of participation include career building, awards and camaraderie.

Applications for ResStaff are due to Housing each year in October and offers are made by mid-January.
