How to Apply


The Office of Sustainability hires students from all types of academic and personal backgrounds. As we strive to build a holistic and unique working environment, we strongly encourage students from all majors to apply. In the past we have worked with students from both the natural and social sciences, and the humanities. We believe that fostering a diverse internship program is the key to developing solutions to problems on campus while building a strong community atmosphere.

The Office searches for self-starting individuals with an ability to brainstorm creative solutions to challenges facing our community. While experience in sustainability is a plus, this is not a requirement for an internship position. We hire both undergraduate and graduate students at the College of Charleston for the spring, summer, and fall semesters, while also accepting applications from other campuses for the summer internship program.

Important Dates

Internships are offered during the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters. Applications are typically announced several months before the end of each semester. If interested in working with us, please reach out to our Internship Coordinator, Dr. Ashley Lavender at!
