Internship Program in Sustainability

In its first six months of existence, the IU Task Force on Sustainability established the Internship Program in Sustainability. Now managed by the IU Office of Sustainability, the program utilizes campus as a living-learning lab, enlisting students as researchers in investigating important questions facing our community. Through internships co-mentored by staff in operations and faculty members, students conduct research and develop programming focused on general sustainability outreach and education or in specific topic areas such as food, transportation or resource use.
