Welcome to the Environmental Leadership Incubator!
Cultivating leaders to turn big environmental ideas into reality
Have you ever wondered how you can turn an idea into a great project, how you can play a critical role in tackling today’s environmental challenges, or how you can inspire and motivate a team?
The Environmental Leadership Incubator (ELI) is a nine-month program that trains undergraduate students to become environmental leaders. The ELI program is organized around student-initiated projects that seek to implement positive environmental change. It combines coursework and leadership skills training in the fall quarter, with project implementation and mentorship by real world professionals in the winter and spring quarters.
