Information for Students
Both students from MSU and Missouri S&T can participate in this initiative by helping perform onsite pollution prevention technical assistance at Missouri manufacturing companies. For this purpose, they receive prior training plus the great opportunity to gain experiential learning and build their resume. Moreover, they can qualify for class or internship credit.
Students can intern with the MSU Sustainability Program to work on multiple site assessments, plus they can get possible internship opportunities with companies to implement the P2 recommendations.
Previous Interns Experience
"This sustainability internship has allowed me to grow and sharpen a multitude of valuable skills that eventually helped me land a job in my field directly after graduation. From networking with a wide variety of employees at all levels in many different manufacturing, business, and science areas, to honing my problem solving, research, critical thinking through process mapping, this internship helped me grow in ways that would not be possible without it. On top of it all, the work that you do here makes a real impact in pollution prevention, which is incredibly important in these times. Doug is an excellent supervisor who is always there for you and invested in your success, and I could not recommend this internship enough if you want to grow your marketable skills while making a difference in the community we all live in."
Daniel Padilla - Biology Major and intern Summer and Fall 2021
"Working with the P2 program this summer was the best way to get hands-on experience in sustainability and environmental health. I was able to apply my knowledge as a public health student, and see various types of manufacturing processes that I wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to see."
