Student Internships and Utilizing RFPs as Ways to Involve Students in On-Campus Projects

Colleen Butterfield, Project Manager, Education, Alliance to Save Energy
The Alliance to Save Energy’s PowerSave Campus program is a student-led initiative that promotes green careers, generates actual energy savings, increases awareness of the importance of energy efficiency, and encourages academic infusion of sustainability concepts. At this webinar, representatives from the program – which includes 16 campus and counting – will be presenting best practice case studies to help kickstart energy efficiency projects started on your campus. This particular presentation will focus on community colleges, but the projects are also field tested at four year universities. The webinar will also feature a round robin for questions as well as advice from those at community colleges about how to overcome unique challenges and barriers to initiating energy efficiency and/or student internships on campus.

Carson Bennett , Campus as a Living Lab Faculty Liaison, and Luis Campos, Executive Director, Facilities, Central New Mexico Community College
In order to utilize the built environment as a “Living Lab” for students to learn about sustainability concepts, the Physical Plant Department at Central New Mexico Community College includes an educational requirement in its RFP (Request for Proposals) process. Any vendor who wins a contract with the Physical Plant must be willing to provide educational opportunities to students at the college. These agreements have resulted in photovoltaic array installers visiting Math classes, construction companies displaying how they recycle demolished building materials, and our waste and recycling provider gathering data for use in Statistics, Psychology, and Technical Writing courses.

Student’s Guide to the U.S/ Energy Policy

“This guide takes the reader behind the curtains of American politics and policy development to shed light on the handful of fossil fuel-based companies that are pouring money into Congress and the media in an attempt to undermine America’s ability to confront the climate change crisis.” From the National Wildlife Federation for Campus Ecology/

Submissions are due August 3, 2012. (extensions available)

We invite you to share your success stories, and let other campuses learn from you! 

There are case study guidelines and a template (to help you begin).
