The importance of Student-initiated programs

ESLP works to foster co-intentional learning between students, while creating a culture where students can take action. 

Education for Sustainable Living Program (ESLP) is a student-run organization which offers  student- facilitated Action Research Teams (ARTs) for credit every spring quarter at the University of California Santa Cruz.  Our class has two components: a Monday Night Speaker Series and the Action Research Teams, all of which are based upon sustainable living topics found in the Blueprint for a Sustainable Campus.  The spring ARTs focus on either research-based projects, or  hands-on,  experiential learning.  The 5-unit ESLP Spring Class, CRSN 161, or the 2-unit, CRSN 61, qualifies as a prerequisite for UCSC's Sustainability Minor, and may be substituted for Sociology major credit.
