What are the responsibilities of a GLC?

In general, responsibilities of all GLCs include:

The expected time commitment is about 2-3 hours per week. However, we work hard to maintain a flexible framework to allow people with varying levels of time and availability to get involved.

What opportunities are available to GLCs?

Joining the GLC community is an extremely rewarding chance to not only build your skills in leadership while making a tangible impact on campus, but also to meet an amazing group of people. Just some of the opportunities the GLC offers include:

  • An optional 2-unit, fall quarter training course to teach you the skills needed to effect real change in sustainability on campus
  • Opportunities for you to get funding and other resources to implement a project of your own design in your residence 
  • The annual GLC Symposium, open to any GLC members that want to showcase their work from the year 
  • Chances to work with administrators, staff members, and Stanford professors
