Summer interns in the Zilkha Center have the opportunity to focus on a wide range of sustainability projects that impact our campus community. While interns with the Zilkha Center carry out specific projects, they are encouraged to be creative in addressing the challenges posed in the internship and are welcome to augment or extend the job descriptions outlined below.
Interns should expect a mix of collaborative and independent work, self-guided and assigned. Each week, interns will meet multiple times to discuss topics in sustainability, build project related skills, and cook sustainable meals as a group. Interns are expected to engage the rest of the cohort with their project in some capacity over the course of the summer. Similarly, interns are expected to enthusiastically support the work of their fellow interns. In addition to the responsibilities outlined for each position below, interns should also expect to participate in team building activities and regional field trips throughout the summer.
