Make a difference
The Campus Sustainability Intern works with students, faculty and staff on a wide array of sustainability initiatives. This includes working closely with the Sustainability Fellow and campus stakeholders in the research, implementation, and analysis of sustainability projects and co-curricular sustainability programming. All interns are expected to be leaders, researchers, advocates, and participants.
Be part of the team
Students will learn basic methods of environmental impact assessment and project management, strengthen written/verbal communication skills, develop leadership skills and collaborate as part of a team, develop strong organizational habits, and increase knowledge of sustainability principles and applications. Students may have the opportunity to present at and/or attend a conference relating to campus sustainability.
Choose your path
The Sustainability Interns should indicate their interest and be prepared to do projects in one or more of the following areas of campus sustainability:
- Renewable energy, energy efficiency, and climate
- Sustainable food and agriculture
- Sustainable waste management
- Sustainability education and outreach
- Natural resources and conservation
“I feel empowered to take on tasks that support our institution and align with sustainable and environmental missions.”
