Program Overview

The Office of Sustainability Student Internship Program, a collaboration with UGA’s Fanning Institute for Leadership Developmentprovides opportunities for experiential learning, leadership, and professional development while making a positive and tangible impact within the University of Georgia and Athens communities. Since 2010 our internship program has grown from one intern to as many as 26 positions. 

All interns participate in leadership development programs provided by UGA Outdoor Recreation and the Fanning Institute, as well as the Semester in Review event on Reading Day.

Time

Internship positions in the Office of Sustainability are available during each academic semester. Interns have opportunities to collaborate with other interns and office staff and are expected to spend at least 10 hours per week working on a specified project or topical area and assisting Office of Sustainability staff as needed.

Academic Credit

Some degree programs require an internship. Students are encouraged to initiate opportunities for relevant academic course credit through their college or school. To date, credit internships have been arranged through the Odum School of Ecology, the College of Environment + Design, the College of Public Health, the Grady College of Journalism & Mass Communications, and others.
