Student Energy Board

The Student Energy Board (SEB) is instrumental in designing and executing many of ND Energy’s campus and community outreach activities. SEB members enjoy sharing their common interest through group discussions, documentary screenings, and engagements with faculty, students, and the broader community. To learn more about current activities and opportunities, visit the Outreach pages of our website.

Puerto Rico Project 2019

SEB is leading an educational initiative regarding the situation in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria involving its power supply. A number of articles and other resources have been gathered in an attempt to foster a better understanding of the situation and the growing interest to increase the use of renewables and localized grids. Learn more about this current initiative. 


Core leadership board members serve a one-year term from January through December. Seniors serve an abbreviated term from January to May. Board members serve in various leadership roles and meet as needed to perform the following functions in support of the ND Energy mission:

  • Plan, organize, and execute energy-related education and outreach programs, including the annual Notre Dame Energy Week, Science Alive, and our partnership with Madison Primary Center in South Bend.
  • Suggest speakers and energy-related topics for seminars, lectures, and conferences.
  • Collaborate with and participate in other student clubs, groups, and organizations to develop energy-related education and outreach programs for the Notre Dame and surrounding communities.
  • Aid in publicizing education and outreach events, research initiatives, and other ND Energy activities to the Notre Dame and surrounding communities through social media, marketing, and advertisements.
