Facilitator Application 2018-2019

Dear Prospective Facilitator,

Thank you for your interest in becoming a facilitator for the Spring 2019 Education for Sustainable Living Program Class! This is a great opportunity to gain skills and tools to assist you in both your personal and professional life.

We would like to emphasize that even if you fill out this application, we are unable to accept anyone as a facilitator if they have a GPA of 2.5 or below and/or if they are currently under any disciplinary sanctions imposed by their affiliated college. If any of these restrictions apply to you, please contact Claire Katzenson (ckatzens@ucsc.edu) or Bre Watkins (brwatkin@ucsc.edu).  

Please note that this is a two quarter time commitment. During Winter Quarter, you will be responsible for a 5-unit class workload. A full commitment of 15 hours per week will be asked from you as this is a research and facilitation intensive course. Tentatively, the Winter Training Seminar will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30-3:05PM. In this seminar, you will work to create a project description while learning facilitation tools and activities. This winter class requires a 10-15 hour time commitment per week.


In the Spring, both the 2 unit and 5 unit Action Research Teams (ARTs) attend the weekly Spring Lecture Series on Monday nights. 2-unit courses are primarily discussion based, while 5-unit courses are generally more in-depth and project based. All sections will be based on topics found in the Blueprint for a Sustainable Campus: http://www.blueprint.enviroslug.org/

Creating a 5 unit action research team requires a greater time commitment. We encourage you to collaborate with another student as co-facilitators. More information and a FAQ about the spring class can be found on our website https://www.eslp-enviroslug.org/

If you wish to co-facilitate, only one application form is required but each applicant must complete a separate 2-page essay and personal statement. An example of past application from co-facilitators is available ESLP website (http://eslp.enviroslug.org).

Please submit your applications to eslp@ucsc.edu and your unofficial transcript to the ESLP Staff Advisor Carmen Gutierrez (cgutier9@ucsc.edu) by Friday, November 16th.
