The Sustainability Leadership Group for the Class of ’23 (SLG ’23) is comprised of 29 first-year students who serve as peer leaders in their respective residence halls. SLG members are selected through an application process at the beginning of their Wake Forest careers, meet several times each month, and work together to engage their peers in sustainable behavior change. Residence hall outreach, coordination with RAs, orchestration of a green dorm room challenge, and many other initiatives are all hallmarks of the program. Typical areas of focus include energy and water conservation, waste reduction, sustainable dining, consumption habits, and participation in sustainability-themed activities and events.

If you are a prospective Wake Forest student and are interested in more information about the program, including how you can get involved, please contact us at
