The Greenbelt Community is a residential learning and living community that provides eco-friendly housing for students interested in reducing their environmental footprint and leading others to a more sustainable future.
Focused on sustainable living, our one-year program is designed to cultivate emerging student leaders who are interested in exploring and living a sustainable lifestyle. Our students live in one of four eco-friendly cabins, take a one-credit seminar each semester to discuss sustainable living, and explore their passions by practicing sustainability in a close-knit community. We also inspire students to develop and implement environmentally-friendly initiatives that will improve our community for future generations.
We welcome applications from rising sophomores, juniors and seniors who are interested in leading our society toward a more sustainable future and becoming catalysts for change. Apply now.
