Working professionals with significant experience in a particular area of sustainability can apply for a Community Fellowship in Sustainability Leadership. This mutually enriching arrangement lets the Fellow share sustainability expertise with other program participants while receiving the framework and support to complete a significant sustainability project or develop a more holistic understanding of sustainability leadership.
The Community Fellowship role combines traditional roles of participants as students and instructors, with more flexible roles of participants as teacher/learners, community partners, mentors and servant-leaders. Community Fellows receive a certificate of completion for participating in the program but do not earn graduate credit. They pay a reduced program cost.
Fellows may be sponsored by an organization (e.g., their employer) that in turn benefits from the professional development and community engagement of the Fellow and from recognition as a supporter of sustainability in the larger community.
