The overall goal of the internship program is to offer students the opportunity to engage in student-driven and action-oriented projects and activities, to learn something new, and to have fun. Throughout the semester, students will work directly with a program staff member to implement the goals of a specific initiative, participate in the broader activities of the Sustainability Center, and see a project through from start to finish. Students will choose one of six focus options for their internship.

Internships are available at the start of each semester:

  • Get Involved! Meet friends, have fun, and make a difference!
  • Gain leadership experience to add to your resume!
  • Initiate positive change on your campus!
