Students will have the opportunity to make an impact on the surrounding community, and may be exposed to many different areas and fields – enhancing their knowledge and experience! Internships occur during the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters, or for longer periods of time.

Community partners can work with the School of Sustainability Internship & Experiential Education Specialist to develop an ongoing internship program or offer opportunities on a case-by-case basis through the Liaison.
