Environmental Programs Internships

Drury Environmental students have many opportunities to work with local and regional environmental agencies and business performing biological, chemical, and physical assessments of various ecosystems. Additionally, they have opportunities to work with area businesses on specific waste reduction projects, and they also have access to opportunities for researching how the environment affects public health and implementing solutions in the community. Through the Office of Sustainability, student interns have completed detailed, campus-wide energy audits, developed and implemented marketing strategies for various environmental initiatives, and designed structures for bike storage and outdoor classrooms.
