    Hi there,

    I am a junior at Northwestern University, majoring in Socio-Environmental Planning and Adaptation, and pursuing a certificate at the Institute of Sustainable Energy at Northwestern (ISEN). I’d love to hear about any internship opportunities the SD Green Building Council is offering this summer.

    Thanks for your time,
