How to Get Involved with SAGE!

If you know of a faculty member that you would like to work alongside on a project, you can establish a SAGE relationship with them and designate them as your mentor for the extent of your work. There are tons of benefits involved in getting on board with the SAGE program!

SAGE provides students the opportunity to successfully realize a goal, project, or vision, in connection with the principles outlined in the Earth Charter, by providing the support, sponsorship, and mentorship necessary to do so.
