Get involved with Sustainability at UIC!
Sustainability Internship Program
The Sustainability Internship Program (SIP) offers hands-on learning experiences for students that advance the overall mission of greater social, economic and environmental sustainability in the campus community. Open to UIC undergraduate students. UIC Faculty and Staff can apply to mentor a student in their department.
The Sustainability Fee funds small, short-term projects, and helps to subsidize larger, long-term projects on campus. Open to all UIC students (graduate and undergraduate).
EcoVolunteers at UIC are essential to achieving our Climate Commitments, especially to become a Zero Waste Campus. EcoVolunteers are notified when they are needed at events via email. Open to everyone (UIC faculty, staff, students, and friends of UIC).
Teaching Sustainability Initiative
The Teaching Sustainability Initiative is a one-day program that provides faculty of all subject areas an overview on how to amend and/or create curricula to include sustainability concepts. The workshop explores how we can meaningfully integrate sustainability—broadly defined—into our classrooms, as well as access to a network of experienced instructors who provide assistance and feedback to formulate a dynamic syllabus and curriculum.
