The Sustainability Leadership Council (SLC), established on Earth Day 2019, convenes student, faculty, and staff representatives from across Johns Hopkins' schools and divisions to advise the university's leadership on a wide range of issues surrounding sustainability and climate change. SLC representatives work to recommend and promote policies, programs, and other initiatives that build a greater role for Johns Hopkins in sustainability teaching, leadership, research, and practice, both locally and globally.
Student SLC members are invited to serve a one-year term and are expected to attend monthly committee meetings, a general body meeting in the fall semester, and an annual symposium in the spring. The nomination cycle for the 2021-22 academic year is open March 1–31, and formal nomination can be submitted through the JHU Student Affairs website. Students will be notified before the end of the current academic year on the status of their application.
