Sustainability Fellows

Our student Sustainability Fellows work on sustainability initiatives on and off campus within a professional, staff-mentored setting. Fellows develop communication and leadership skills that have helped them land jobs and graduate school acceptances.  Sustainability Fellows research, design, and implement outreach projects and communicate with the campus community about complex sustainability issues.
