The Internship in Sustainability utilizes campus as a learning lab, enlisting students as researchers in investigating important questions facing our community, such as: How do the ways our campus operates and consumes resources effect 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 environmental health, and how do we best communicate these opportunities? And many more.
