  • Skills, approaches and tactics to translate knowledge to action
  • Techniques for collaboration, leading teams, building effective networks and transdisciplinary synthesis
  • Membership in a growing network of motivated early career researchers from across disciplines at CSU.

Over the course of the academic year, fellows receive a series of skill-building trainings and workshops, as well as access to special events and networking opportunities.

Sustainability Leadership Fellows report improved proficiency and confidence in science communication and leadership skills as well as exposure to new tools and perspectives.
