The Leading Environmental Advancement Fellowship (LEAF) is a free, year-long program in the Student Sustainability Center under the School of Global Environmental Sustainability that meets for 1 to 2 hours, one to two times a month. The purpose of this program is to provide passionate, concerned students a pathway to become competant, skillful sustainable professionals.

Our sessions will work with selected students how they can apply their degrees in a wide array of career opportunities, build a network of sustainability professionals, and communicate to learn about their field of interests beyond the classroom. The interdisciplinary nature of sustainability is becoming increasingly important in the private and public sector, and communication across government, business, science, etc. is highly valued in graduates. Acceptance into the program is competitive, and it is a unique building block for resumes and professional development for students at Colorado State University across all eight colleges.
