Our Sustainability Integration Program for Students (SIPS) is an award-winning initiative that offers you meaningful opportunities to work on real-world sustainability challenges and help the University operate more sustainably. You can be paid for your time or earn course credit for your work.
You might have a passion for a sustainability challenge or an idea you are keen to explore, or you could be looking for opportunities to apply the skills you've developed through your study in a sustainability context.
SIPS connects you with people across the University working to create sustainable change today. Students have been actively involved in shaping how sustainability is practised, and you can contribute too.
