2020-2021 Academic Year Internships

The Office of Environmental Sustainability will hire a team of Interns to assist with office operations and develop sustainability related initiatives on campus research. The purpose of the internship is to facilitate understanding of the scope of the sustainability features and initiatives supported by Amherst College, and allow students the opportunity to take on leadership roles in creating events and programming that increase a campus culture of sustainability. Interns will be expected to design and develop their own sustainability initiatives, contribute to the independent projects of their peers, and represent the OES on campus and within the student body as a whole.


- Attend weekly meetings on the development of collaborative projects
- Participate in the planning of several campus events hosted or co-hosted by the OES.
- Independently develop new initiatives to increase the visibility of the OES and promote a culture of sustainability.
