Career & Leadership Development

Interested in environmental policy, coastal ecology, geology, hydrology, or teaching at summer camp?

Lunch info session-12:15 PM, Room 215 of Snowden & info session, 5:00 PM, Career & Leadership Development Conference Room

For students (of any major) interested in environmental policy, coastal ecology, geology, hydrology, or even teaching at a summer camp....

At least four paid internships will be offered exclusively to Sewanee students at three different Texas sites: Mustang Island on the Gulf of Mexico, the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority in Texas's Hill Country, and also in the Hill Country, a land management project with Camp Capers. These properties are owned by the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas. In an effort to promote new curricula in ecology and environmental stewardship, the Diocese embraces its relationship with Sewanee and proposes a mutually beneficial internship program for students studying earth and environmental sciences.

The coordinator of these internships will be on campus on Tuesday, November 27 and would like to meet students who are interested in these issues and in working in Texas this summer. If you'd like to learn more, please plan to attend the lunch information session which will be offered at 12:15 p.m. in Room 215 of Snowden or an information session will also be offered at 5:00 p.m. in the offices of Career & Leadership Development. (Please let me know which session you would prefer to attend by reserving your spot on Tigernet - we'll have pizza at lunch and snacks in the afternoon!)
