Student Intern Program

The Office of Sustainability employs student interns year-round to work on campus sustainability projects. Students can work during the academic year and/or during a 10-week summer program.

The student intern program is open to any undergraduate who is passionate about sustainability, regardless of major. Application periods are announced both on the Office of Sustainability homepage and in the Office of Sustainability Newsletter. You learn more about the current student interns here.
