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 predetermined campus sustainability projects that benefit the students and university alike.  Sustainability projects will often be related to the following operational areas: Assessment, Transportation, Procurement, Buildings, Recycling/Waste Management, Behavioral Change, and Sustainable Dining/Living.

The Office of Sustainability provides support, guidance, and access to information and resources to students involved in the GSIP program that will enable the 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.

Information is posted to this website when internships are available. If you are interested in finding out about the status of opportunities, please email
