Center for a Sustainable Society
The Center for a Sustainable Society provides a collaborative framework for work on reducing the region's environmental footprint. The center works with the faculty to promote inclusion of sustainability topics throughout the curriculum; with students, faculty and staff to increase the use of sustainable practices on the university's campuses; and with internal and external partners to make the university, Forest Grove and Washington County a model for sustainable living.
Opened in July 2012, the center works closely with the University Sustainability Committee, student environmental organizations, faculty, staff and off-campus partners—such as METRO, Clean Water Services, businesses, nonprofits and local cities—to make the day-to-day operations of the University and the region more sustainable. In concert with the university's mission, the center also promotes opportunities for research, education and relevant work experiences for students.
There are two internship opportunties this summer (2014) through Adelante Mujeres.
