Office of Sustainability student staff and interns play a key role in the development of quality sustainable programs at Ohio University. Since sustainability is a truly interdisciplinary topic, the members of our student staff come from a diverse set of academic disciplines and personal interests.
All members of the OU student staff are trusted with meaningful projects that advance the office's goals and mission while contributing to student success. During their time in the office, students are invited to dedicate approximately 15% of their time on professional development. Through the help of the Director of Sustainability and the Professional Development Coordinator, students are guided through a skills-set assessment and then develop a plan for thoughtful reflection and development of personal skills. This is done in an effort to allow students to proactively approach their plans after graduation.
There are currently no undergraduate paid positions available.
