Student Leadership Council

The Student Leadership Council (SLC) is comprised of representatives from each U.S. university participating in QESST. The active QESST SLC has established the following goals:

  • establish and encourage clear lines of communication with a database of names, email address, and areas of research of all students and faculty participating in QESST research;
  • build and cultivate student community and cohesiveness across partner universities: through group activities, seminars, meetings;
  • promote the sharing of creativity and innovation among students for the progression of PV science and technology.
