SER’s Student Association Program provides an opportunity for students interested in ecological restoration and related fields to become involved in SER’s global network, participate in SER conferences and events, and take advantage of SER resources. Organized and run entirely by the students themselves, student associations can be formed at any accredited academic institution, and provide a means for those students interested in pursuing a career in some facet of ecological restoration to come together in a like-minded group. The program was established in 2007 and has since grown to include several active student groups throughout the US and one in Canada. The program is not limited to US institutions, however, and can be formed by a motivated student group from anywhere in the world.

The Colorado State University Society for Ecological Restoration Student Association (CSU-SER) was established in 2008 with a goal of bringing together individuals from different disciplines that are invested in solving environmental problems.
