The EIC Sustainability Internship is designed to provide a UM-Dearborn student with an experiential learning opportunity focused around sustainability initiatives and how they connect to ecological realities of the natural world.
This is made possible by the unique urban setting of the Environmental Study Area on which the University is located.
The applicant must demonstrate leadership skills and initiative, as well as possess high quality communication and interpersonal skills. The student applicant may be enrolled in any concentration or program, but will be expected to have taken courses appropriate for an understanding of the natural sciences.
The EIC Sustainability Internship is a paid ($10/hr) student internship which takes place at the Environmental Interpretive Center from May to August. Students are expected to work, on average, about 20 hours per week, and the work schedule is flexible in order to accommodate student summer coursework or other job commitments. The summer intern is expected to participate in and manage the Center’s sustainability initiatives, including its Community Organic Garden, beeyard, mushroom garden, rain gardens, and composting project. The summer intern will also be responsible for researching and building his/her own sustainability project at the Center.
