Internships

The Office of Sustainability offers a variety of internships throughout the year, and can include work during summer and winter breaks.

Students working at a food table

 

Interns can earn academic credit or be paid, and positions fall into the following categories:

  • Energy efficiency and renewable energy
  • Waste reduction, recycling, and resource efficiency
  • Food recovery
  • Land stewardship and conservation
  • Community garden and community health
  • Community awareness, outreach and social justice

SCSU sustainability internships are designed for students to connect their academic studies with direct experiences planning, managing, and tracking sustainability projects on campus and in local communities. Because sustainability challenges are inter- and trans-disciplinary, internships are open to undergraduate and graduate students at SCSU in any major or program of study. In the past three years, undergraduate and graduate students from the following programs have completed sustainability internships: Chemistry, Public Health, Geography, Biology, Art, English, Women's Studies, Business/ Management, Exercise Science, Psychology, and Secondary Education.

Rolling acceptance. Internships are limited, so apply in advance.
