Learning to Engage the World
The Center for Sustainability Education (CSE) Internship Program employs students to work on projects to advance sustainability at Dickinson. CSE hires up to twelve paid interns each semester (10 hours/week) and up to four in the summer (40 hours/week). We also periodically offer 6-8 hour/week research assistantships. All of our paid internships provide students with a transcript notation of their experience. We also support independent research and project volunteers.

- Biking@Dickinson: Management of The Handlebar (our campus bicycle co-operative), coordination of biking listserve, Bike to Farm Potluck, Green Bike Program and bike storage.

- Compensation: Based on commensurate job experience on campus and special skills. Paid bi-weekly. Students who do an internship for academic credit will not receive pay. Work-study & non work-study students accepted.
- Qualifications: Dickinson students only. Experience as a Dickinson Eco-Rep or as a previous CSE Intern will be given priority, but students of all majors with a passion for sustainability are welcomed to apply. Previous interns must re-apply every semester.
