Want to Make Change on Campus?

The Office of Sustainability is looking for motivated and dedicated students for internships during the 2016 spring semester. Unpaid, for academic credit, and project rotation internships are available for undergraduate and graduate students. As our projects are student driven initiatives, applicants must be self-motivated, organized, and have a passion for sustainability. A portion of the internship will include intern personal development, and professionalism and leadership training. While some of the positions may be working on pre-determined projects, the Office of Sustainability promotes creativity and collaboration and any new initiative will be considered for implementation.

To Apply: The following are required for the spring 2016 internship:

• An application packet sent to that includes:

  • A resume with two professional references (contact information only, letters of recommendation are not required)
  • A letter of intent describing why you want to work for the Office, how your skills and experiences make you a good candidate for the position and what you wish to work on during your time at the Office.

• Completion of the online application here.

The deadline for application submission is Friday, November 27th at 5pm.
