Penn Sustainability is hiring! We are accepting applications for an academic year photography intern. This position is a paid opportunity for the 2022-2023 Academic Year and will begin in early September 2022.

We also have a few spots left in our Academic Year Eco-Reps program. Penn's Student Eco-Reps is an environmental leadership program for students interested in advancing sustainability through the implementation of campus-based projects. Each year, 10-20 students work as paid employees of Penn’s Sustainability Office and collaborate with our University partners to carry out projects in support of Penn’s Climate and Sustainability Action Plan 3.0. Students meet weekly with staff in Penn’s Sustainability Office and work in small teams throughout the year to develop in-depth projects aimed at solving environmental challenges on campus. Initiatives may focus on topics ranging from energy conservation to waste and recycling, water conservation, academic initiatives, local foods, environmental literacy, and more. All of our projects involve a strong hands-on component and focus on creating solutions through analyzing the current problem, developing small-scale pilots, and then focusing on broader implementation. Apply to be an Eco-Rep.
