Student Career Development

The committed to Change program strives to engage students in applied projects on campus and in the community. We provide assistance with research supplies and materials, student and faculty stipends, and travel to conferences to deliver presentations on successful projects. On campus, funds will be targeted for projects related to climate neutrality (exploring alternative transportation, renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable campus operations, and reforestation), forest protection, ecological conservation, and sustainable enterprises. In the community, funds will target work with our established partners (including EcoVillage at Ithaca, Institute for Sustainable Agriculture, New Roots Charter School, Tompkins County Solid Waste, the City of Ithaca, Tompkins County Planning, Sustainable Tompkins, Tompkins Renewable Energy Education Alliance, Cayuga Nature Center, the History Center, Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute, the Ithaca Nature Awareness School, and others.

Internship and research program experiences and support are made possible through the following programs:
