Campus Sustainability Fellows
The Campus Sustainability Fellows (CSF) program is a paid student corps that works to assist individual Duke schools to assess and reduce their environmental impact while connecting to broader campus sustainability initiatives. Sustainable Duke's Campus Sustainability Fellows provide assistance to individual Duke schools with sustainability initiatives and assessment. Sustainable Duke selects upper-class undergraduate and masters/graduate students to serve as fellows for one year. Fellows work to access schools’ environmental impact and identify opportunities for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions. With guidance from Sustainable Duke, fellows identify, collaborate with and provide resources to staff in the school who are interested and engaged in sustainability and workplace greening.
Specific tasks for fellows include conducting departmental level GHG inventories, connecting with existing green teams (if applicable), assisting departments with completion of the Green Workplace Certification, conducting waste audits, evaluating water usage, as well as other sustainability initiatives. Projects will be centered on a theme for each year, such as waste reduction, that is connected to the priorities of the Campus Sustainability Committee (CSC) for that particular year. Fellows will report school assessments and progress to the CSC to better connect their efforts with campus sustainability priorities.
For 2012-2013 there will be three Fellow positions open with an additional fourth Fellow from the Nicholas School Assistantship program that will assist the Sustainability Director with coordination of the overall program.
