"How can I get involved?"

Students: Come to meetings; participate in workshops and attend events; become a resident in the center and take part in sustainable living practices; take connected classes for credit; do a project or an internship involving the SLC; tell your friends!
    Want to live in the SLC? Apply through the affinity housing program. Everyone is welcome, regardless of experience or academic interests. Blitz "slc" for more information.
    Applications for Summer '11 are now closed. Check back for information about fall term! The application can be found at here.
Faculty: Become involved with the center; integrate your classes, teaching an experience-based class with the living center as your subject matter - research, visits, presentations; support indepedent studies; speak at an SLC event or dinner. (The opportunities for interdisciplinary links are endless: ENVS: What is sustainability? How could we best attempt to approach a truly sustainable, closed-loop living space? ENGS: How can we design the building to be as energy efficient as possible? What sort of alternative energies might we explore and how might we harness them in an off-the-grid housing structure? ECON: What are some of the cost-benefit aspects of sustainability techniques? Could we make this center profitable? MANY MORE). Feel free to contact our Academic Link.

Alumni: Help to continue Dartmouth’s tradition of environmental excellence; use the SLC a space to hold meetings or reunions; head up a committee of alumni in support of the center; lobby to the Administration or Board of Trustees.

Community Members: Visit us as a space to learn sustainable techniques that can help you lower your utility bills; support sustainable living techniques; sponsor the center; help with construction (when the time comes!).

All Others: Tell us a bit about other programs you know of, or special tips or hints from your house or project that worked especially well.

Contact us via letter or email! - Explain your particular interest or support of the center. Let us know how you could use the SLC to YOUR benefit. Your letters and emails will provide us with both information regarding interest and serve as proof that there is support behind the center and its ideals.
