Green Student Intern Program

The Office of Sustainability’s Green Student Intern Program (GSIP) employs students during the summer, fall, and spring semesters to work on sustainability projects that benefit students, the university, and our larger community. Intern work areas are subject to change, but projects will often be related to the following operational realms: transportation, recycling/waste management, behavioral change, and outreach and event planning.

The Office of Sustainability provides support, guidance, and access to information and resources to students involved in the GSIP program that will enable sustainability projects to succeed. To maximize the effect of the GSIP program, interns will be encouraged to record their progress with each project, including the context, lessons learned, where the project needs to go next, and any other relevant information that will ensure that long-term projects maintain their momentum.

Green Student Interns are expected to work 10-20 hours per week. Interested applicants should also check with their academic departments to see if they qualify for academic credit. The Office of Sustainability has an existing academic credit agreement with the Environmental Studies Minor.
