The 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 student teams which focus work in one of our main Initiative areas, though some 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.
You'll work with your teammates and help of our professional staff to identify and implement projects that will create lasting, meaningful, and positive impact in our campus and greater community. Along the way, our professional staff provide you with 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 improve 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 campus environmental impact.
