Our robust internship program engages students in solving the sustainability challenges that exist on our campus. Students in our internship programs have a unique opportunity to be changemakers here on campus. Interns have a chance to develop the skills necessary for solving complex problems in the world. Each year, our interns contribute to solutions in waste, energy, food, transportation, outreach, student mentorship, sustainability data metrics, social justice, and more. If you are a student who wants to make a difference here at Dartmouth and in the world, you've come to the right place! 

We offer internships every term (including summer!) Our internships are managed by sustainability staff members, who help guide our students in projects and collaboration. As part of their internship, students partake in bi-weekly all intern gatherings to build community and collaborate on cross-campus projects. All interns are expected to lead and manage their own projects, pushing our students to tackle real challenges that our community is facing. Each intern has the opportunity to make a real impact here at Dartmouth.


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