Working at the EC

student holding white boardThe Environmental Center is an on-campus, student-driven organization that works to advance environmental and social sustainability efforts on campus and throughout our region. Students who work with us gain valuable experience in how to create environmental and social change. We are looking for passionate individuals excited to gain professional skills, develop their personal change-making ethic, and be part of our amazing team!

Opportunities to work at the EC range from general team staff members to more specialized roles. Check out all our current openings below. Please note that the application process can vary for different positions, so please read the job descriptions carefully!

Environmental Center Student Team Members

Students who work as Team Members at the EC commit to working around 5-10 hours per week. Most students are placed on one of our teams that are each focused on a different initiative area, though some students may work in more specialized roles. Students who qualify for Work Study can use their EC Team Member position to count as paid Work Study hours since the work we do positively contributes to our campus.

As an EC Team Member, you'll work with your teammates and EC professional staff to identify and implement projects that will create lasting, meaningful, and positive impacts at FLC and in the greater community. Along the way, our professional staff will provide you personal and professional development through coaching, mentorship, and trainings.

As an example, if you are on the Real Food Challenges team, you would meet with campus stakeholders to understand our campus dining food system. Using what you've learned, you will work on ways to increase the amount of local, organic, fair, and humane food on campus in an economically viable way. For another example, as part of the Zero Waste team, you and your team may run a campaign to improve recycling on campus, reducing our collective environmental impact.

We are not currently accepting applications for Team Members, but be sure to check back at the very start of spring semester for new openings!
