Information about the Equity & Leadership in Natural Resources Community
Warner Residential Learning Communities (RLCs) support students’ leadership development in natural resources, sustainability, and outdoor leadership. Equity & Leadership in Natural Resources (EL) students live and learn together; network with natural resources faculty, graduate students, student leaders, and community members; and gain professional development in diversity, equity, and inclusion in natural resource fields. NR 192 Seminar course topics focus on diverse perspectives in natural resources, environmental justice, and leadership to promote equity. Service-learning activities also include community engagement related to these themes. Students have linked course opportunities with CO 150 in special sections focused on natural resource food, energy, and water issues.
All Warner RLC students participate in professional development experiences to expand their knowledge and skills and take part in service-learning and career exploration in their chosen fields of study. At the start of the fall semester, RLC students take part in a common reading, participate in programming at the CSU Environmental Learning Center, and take part in a WCNR RLC Leadership Retreat. Spring programming includes participation in the Banff Mountain Film Festival at CSU and additional opportunities for leadership development.
