Sustainability Fellows

Communication, leadership skills and project design and implementation are just a few of the skills that have helped our Fellows land jobs and graduate school acceptances. 

The Sustainability Fellows program is a leadership and experiential learning program supervised by Office of Sustainability (OS) staff members. Sustainability Fellows research, design, and 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 students develop communication and leadership skills that they can take from this program and apply to other jobs or educational projects.
