The Office of Sustainability (IUOS) addresses issues of environmental, economic and social sustainability in campus operations, academic programs, and university-community relations. This summer, IUOS is seeking to hire their fifth group of outstanding undergraduate and graduate students dedicated to advancing sustainability at Indiana University Bloomington to participate in the 2011 Summer Internship Program in Sustainability.
The IUB Summer Internship Program in Sustainability will run from mid-May through mid-August. Funding is available to support 14 new sustainability-related internships. Five of these interns work on ongoing IUOS projects. The other ten will join four continuing interns, working collaboratively with IUOS and the Campus Sustainability Advisory Board on projects designed to meet the strategic goals of the seven working groups. Students will be expected to work approximately 20 hours per week over the course of the summer and participate in a 1-credit summer 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 summer of service, graduate fellows and undergraduate interns will receive stipends between $2,500 and $3,000 and a 1- credit fee remission for the summer seminar.
