Our Team

We are a small, dedicated staff with an enthusiastic team of undergraduate students who implement projects, events and programs that drive us to a stronger culture of sustainability. We collaborate with our staff associates and rely on the efforts of our sustainability committees to drive engagement and push policy or operational changes.

Join the team

We call for applications every winter and spring to hire for the following academic year.
