Student Positions

Students leaders help educate each other to strengthen our sustainable campus culture. Many student organizations practice peer-to-peer education, and the campus also has several formal sustainability peer-engagement programs that require students to apply and join a formal leadership training opportunity. 

The Campus Sustainability Office also hires 3-5 students per semester in full-time (20 hrs/week) paid positions.  Current openings will be posted on and on this site.
