Schedule of events 

UMass Lowell is thrilled to host the 2021-2022 academic year Sustainability Student Leaders Symposium. Students from the Northeast will congregate for a half-day conference featuring student presentations, engagement workshops, networking opportunities, roundtable discussions, and a sustainability site tour.

The theme for the Symposium is centered around the importance of partnerships and collaboration in sustainability. The peer-to-peer environment will allow students to explore previous sustainability projects and identify future project implementation that will leave a lasting legacy throughout their own campus communities.

COVID-19 Protocol: Please note that the Sustainability Student Leaders Symposium (SSLS) will be offering a hybrid format. Attendees will have the option to join the conference in-person or remote. UMass Lowell is currently monitoring and following Massachusetts state guidelines. Please refer to your university and state guidelines as applicable, as well as any travel restrictions when considering registration. Any updates will be included on any email announcements and published on the hosted website.


Parking for the symposium is available at the Coburn Lot or the Wilder Lot on UMass Lowell's south campus. Parking is free for all attendees.
