Environmental Center 2021-2022 opportunities

The Environmental Center is accepting applications for student assistants for the 2021-2022 academic year.  We are seeking students with a passion for sustainability, climate action and social justice. Students with experience or interest in hands on work, peer outreach, or community organizing should apply.   Openings are anticipated with the bike program, promotions and outreach, eco-buffs peer outreach, zero waste, green labs, climate justice, energy, communications, events and more. 

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis through the end of July.  Priority deadline is July 30th, 2021.  We will continue to accept applications through August for positions that remain available.

Most positions begin at Student Assistant I ($15 to start).  Some positions that require more specific experience and skills, for example Videographer or Graphic Designer, begin at Student Assistant II ($16 to start).  Student specialist or lead positions will begin at Student Assistant III ($17.50 to start). 

Sick leave benefits:  All student employees accrue sick leave at the rate of 0.034 hours for every 1 hour worked. For example, after a student works 30 hours, they earn 1.02 hours of paid sick leave.  Sick leave balances remain with student employees as long as they are continuously employed at CU, and during breaks of no longer than 6 months.

The Environmental Center can only hire current students who are officially registered in a degree-seeking program at CU Boulder.  More information about jobs and hiring can be read at our Hiring Information link.
