Meet our Sustainability Interns
UMM's sustainability interns work closely with the Green Campus Steering Committee doing research, creating educational materials, and organizing/supporting sustainable efforts on campus. Some of their projects include:
- Identifying a specific sustainability-related project for our campus and take the lead in its completion.
- Making presentations to clubs, student senate, and staff.
- Researching green/sustainable retrofits for the “Greening the O’Brien House” project.
- Researching what students at other campuses are doing to green their campus and discuss relevant ideas with our student body and the steering committee.
- Working to increase recycling in the residence halls.
