The Sustainability Office Student Employee team is a diverse group of individuals who support and advance sustainability operations and engagement across campus.

This role is open to all class years and majors and is suited to a wide range of skillsets, including event planning, communications (newsletters, social media and print media), data management and analysis, and more. Students have the opportunity to advance their leadership and skills in subsequent years. 

Each year the Director of Sustainability and Sustainability Coordinator assign student staff to a team within the office. Within each team, student employees will be responsible for one or more projects based on the student's unique skills and interests and the needs of the office.
