Hey, Enernerds! A couple of questions for you.
- Connect with students from around the world?
- Expand your energy network?
- Take action on energy in your community?
- Change the future of energy?
Well, guess what, Student Energy has the perfect answer for you! We have just launched our brand new Chapter program around the world, and there is an amazing opportunity for you to get involved!
What Is The Chapter Program?
Chapters are a way for you to start a Student Energy club or society at your university. Instead of acting alone, you and your friends (or fellow students) will get to leverage Student Energy’s global brand, knowledge, network and connections to take action on energy right where you live and go to school.
Official chapters will be provided with a Student Energy branded logo, access to our online chapters hub with event and activity templates, a web page on studentenergy.org, help from Student Energy Staff, and opportunities to connect, work with enernerds from across the globe and be mentored by leading energy industries.
Interested in starting a chapter?
Want to get going? Here’s what you need to do:
1. Fill out a questionnaire
Let us know about you and why you want to start the chapter by filling out this form.
The application gives us a good idea of if you’re a good candidate for the program and helps us get to know you better.
2. Hear back from our Community Manager
Within a week of filling out your application, you’ll receive an email from our Community Manager, Kate. She’ll let you know if she needs more information or what the next steps in the process are for your specific case.
3. Go through our Onboarding Process
Once everything is set you’ll go through an onboarding process with the Student Energy team. This includes learning all the ins and outs of the chapter program, what resources are available to you and what guidelines need to be followed to be part of the program. Finally, you’ll sign a memorandum of understanding that sets up a formal relationship between your club, university, and Student Energy.

Note: We’ll only be able to take on a limited amount of chapters at a time so if you’re excited about the program, be sure to fill out your application as soon as possible!
With support from the Calgary Foundation, we have spent the last year testing this model with five different pilot chapters at the University of Calgary, University of Edmonton, Mount Royal University, University of Nigeria, and Durham University. Through the process, the organization learned a great deal and is now ready to open up this opportunity to the rest of our community. It has been a great deal of work to put this program together but now that it’s ready we can’t wait for the enernerds to start using it and taking advantage of these opportunities!
So what are you waiting for? Sign-up and be part of the largest and most excitement movement of Student Energy!
