Community for Environmental Leaders

When you join the Community for Environmental Leaders (CEL), you get to live and learn with peers who share your passions. You will live together in the same hall while exploring sustainability through field trips, volunteer service events, and course work. This program begins with a four-day orientation trip during which residents camp together and learn about local food, alternative transportation, water management, or coastal ecology. Throughout the year, CEL residents have priority registration for several environmental issues courses. You will also have opportunities to explore Eugene’s quirky corners and the natural world beyond with knowledgeable resident assistants and other mentors.
