The Environmental Center is one of the most active student environmental communities in the country - our graduates often go on to distinguished careers in sustainability. The E-Center provides access to sustainability knowledge and resources; fosters leadership and action through meaningful volunteer, internship and job opportunities; and creates funding and mentoring for student-developed programs and projects.
CU students have led environmental efforts to launch the nation's first collegiate recycling program, first student-purchased wind energy program, first student government carbon neutrality pledge, zero-waste for athletic events, earth education, environmental justice, numerous groundbreaking conferences and events, and a series of leadership initiatives that span the forty years of the Environmental Center's operations.
Much of the programmatic, research, and on the ground operations work for campus programs is carried out by paid student employees. See our Current Openings to explore student jobs that can help you build skills while getting paid to further CU's sustainability efforts.
