So, what can you do? CI has many current and upcoming sustainability projects that require a campus-wide commitment to accomplish. Many of these projects begin in the Department of Facilities Services (FS). If you would like to participate in innovative projects that will aid CI in spearheading the trail toward social, economic, and environmental sustainability, then we have the resources for you. Take advantage of this opportunity to gain real-world insight and experience in the field of sustainability.
