Office of Sustainability Internships

The Office of Sustainability (OS) provides opportunities for students to participate in campus sustainability activities through a for-credit internship (ENVS 482) offered in the fall and spring semesters.  Students may choose an appropriate project from the following subject areas or support a particular project currently being worked on by the OS.  Subject areas can include:  Built Environment, Campus Landscape, Education, Energy, Food Services, Procurement, Transportation, Waste, and Water.  Interns will work directly with the office Director or Sustainability Coordinator to craft a project through the semester that will directly support OS activities.  The OS internship provides applied experience working on research and planning efforts.

The number of internships are limited.  Contact TallChief Comet ( for more information about this opportunity.


Internships through Power Save Green Campus

Humboldt State was one of the first schools to participate in the Power Save Green Campus Program, a nationwide student program that trains student interns to integrate energy education into the curricula, raise campus awareness about the relationship between the environment and energy and implement campus energy efficiency programs. One of Power Save Green Campus Program's  initiatives is a campus office audit and certification program that reduces each office's energy consumption.  Paid and for-credit internships are available each semester.
