2013 Summer Internship Program in Sustainability

The Summer Internship Program in Sustainability utilizes campus as a living-learning lab, enlisting students as researchers in investigating important questions facing our community, such as: How do the ways in which our campus operates and consumes resources affect the social, environmental and economic well being of our community? How is our campus impact connected to more complicated global issues like climate change, resource scarcity and poverty? What opportunities do we have as individuals, institutions, communities, and governments to increase collective social, economic and economic health, and how do we best communicate these opportunities? How will we adapt and ensure all people have the ability to thrive in response to dynamic climate conditions and limitations on resources?


We have 18 open positions (listed below).  Through internships co-mentored by staff in operations and faculty members, interns conduct research and develop programming focused on general sustainability outreach and education or in specific topic areas such as food, transportation or resource use. Internships are co-mentored by IUOS and the Campus Sustainability Advisory Board. We will be hiring for positions in both areas.
