Continuing the tradition of the Indiana University Task Force on Sustainability, the Office of Sustainability (IUOS) addresses issues of environmental, economic and social sustainability in campus operations, academic programs, and university-community relations. This fall, we are seeking another group of outstanding undergraduate and graduate students dedicated to advancing sustainability at Indiana University Bloomington.
The IUB Academic Year Internship Program in Sustainability will run from early October through late April. Funding is available to support eleven new sustainability-related internships. Four of these interns will join four continuing interns working on ongoing IUOS projects. The other seven will join three continuing interns, working collaboratively with IUOS and the Campus Sustainability Advisory Board on projects designed to meet the strategic goals of our seven working groups. Students will be expected to work approximately ten to fifteen hours per week over the course of the school year and participate in a seminar in sustainability taught by Director of Sustainability Bill Brown. Student interns and their mentors will have discretion in setting their work schedules to accommodate vacation and other commitments. For their service, graduate fellows will recieve $11 per hour and undergraduate interns will receive $9 per hour.
