About the Sustainability Fellows Program: The Sustainability Fellows program is a leadership and experiential learning program supervised by the Office of Sustainability. Sustainability Fellows research, design, and/or implement outreach projects and communicate with the campus community about complex sustainability issues. This student mentoring program provides students with the opportunity to work on sustainability initiatives on campus within a professional setting. As stewards of the environment and within the community, the Sustainability Fellows develop communication and leadership skills. The Agroecology Fellow positions (Formerly called Farm Fellows) are expected to guide Campus Farm and Food Forest projects toward all goals for the calendar year of appointment. This position will allow for experiential learning in the sciences and the economies of food (and so much more!). The Agroecology Fellows will plan for and implement an entire growing season; the positions allows for a degree of freedom and creativity to be brought to bear on the program, but also demands working outdoors, and organizational and time management skills.
