Established in 2012, the Sustainability Fellows Program provides students with the opportunity to develop and implement campus sustainability projects working within one of the following teams: Waste Reduction, Campus Infrastructure, Food Systems, Community Collaborations, and Communications. Each team is led by a Senior Fellow who has at least one year of experience working with the Office.

As a Sustainability Fellow, you will have the opportunity to work with campus departments, other student organizations, faculty and community groups. Projects that our teams have worked on include standardizing recycling bins, coordinating the Lending Library, lighting efficiency upgrades and a pilot compost program for independent living students.

All fellows are required to attend an orientation designed to provide understanding of the meaning of sustainability, the College's structure and function, and how their projects connect to the College's overall sustainability goals. New Fellows are also required to take the “Applied Sustainability” seminar in the fall of their first year with the office.

Fellows are generally hired in Spring for the following academic year. Occasionally vacancies will be filled mid year.
