Provide a short description of the project including strategies, regional challenges, aims and specific project activities.: 

The Student Sustainability Center at Portland State University serves as the hub for the College Network and has hired a Leadership Fellow to coordinate efforts. Contact information of professors and staff at different colleges across the greater Portland region have been collected and students serve as point people for each college. They have identified that they would like to work together to have shared trainings, networking opportunities, and events. They co-hosted a group to join the Climate March and hosted a workshop at PSU, titled ”Food on Earth.”  Led by Leadership Fellow Oussama Lairichi, GPSEN Fellow Neeraja Havaligi and GPSEN Director Kim Smith presented, with college network members participating in interactive plant identification exercises.
