Intern Projects

NEW for 2015–2016: Developing recommendations & tools to help teachers integrate climate & sustainability concepts; raising awareness that allowing businesses to externalize their costs means they are borne by the public. [more info]

Over the summer, interns from Lafayette & Syracuse explored campus sustainability — especially the widespread problems with a lack of transparency, awareness and engagement — and analyzed possible weaknesses in the campus Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System [STARS].

As with most of our internship projects, interns use research & analysis to rethink the way we do things. Projects are generally designed to give students hands-on experience in developing solutions and getting them implemented.

We continue to support and work with a variety of efforts to help people get healthy food by promoting school & community gardens and access to food that truly supports health & sustainability. For an overview of the issues, see Healthy Food for Healthy Communities or our page on Sustainable Campus Dining Resources.
