The Dartmouth Sustainability Office has a robust internship program that challenges and empowers Dartmouth undergraduates to solve the human and environmental problems, here on Dartmouth’s campus. Interns are sophomores, juniors, and seniors  who engage in hands on learning, building inclusive community, and transforming campus operations. Some internships are all year, others are term by term.  Intern teams meet weekly with staff from the Sustainability Office to check in on progress and set short-term goals for the following week. Interns also partake in bi-weekly all intern gatherings to build community, collaborate on cross campus projects, and provide feedback to the Sustainability Office on programs and events. Interns are expected to lead, manage, and drive their projects, and each intern has the opportunity to make a real impact here at Dartmouth.

AS PART OF OUR INTERN TEAM, YOU WILL:

  • Understand the human and environmental challenges of a rapidly changing planet and connect those challenges to solutions.

  • Collaborate with a range of stakeholders to design sustainability initiatives that are piloted on campus .

  • Understand how policy and infrastructure impact program development and getting change done.

  • Communicate about sustainability challenges and solutions to peers.

  • Collaborate across difference and incorporate diverse perspectives into sustainability conversations and proposed solutions.

  • Get to know and value a tight knit community of student sustainability change makers and understand their backgrounds, points of views, inner experiences, and feelings.
