Develop and implement a comprehensive approach for the management of energy consumption at Smith College. Continually improve energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption, reduce the college’s greenhouse gas emissions, and align this program with available utility, state, federal, and regional utility incentive programs. Achieve results through cooperation and collaboration with other offices including Facilities Management and the Office of Campus Sustainability.
The Sustainability Engagement & Data Coordinator will develop and deliver outreach and communications for College-wide sustainability programs, projects, initiatives, and events. As a member of the Sustainability Office, the Coordinator works cooperatively with students, faculty, and staff to support and promote activities that build awareness and foster participation in personal and institutional sustainability. The Coordinator also tracks sustainability metrics for multiple analysis and reporting purposes. Both engagement and data management functions are intended to support continuous improvement in reaching the goals of the college Strategic Plan.

“Global warming is happening and we’re seeing the effects all around us — from dangerous heat waves and droughts to last winter’s snowstorms. And scientists warn it could get much worse unless we act soon.
“The good news: we have the solutions. Solar power is taking off, and we’re beginning to harvest energy from the winds off our shores.
“But powerful interests, including utility companies and the fossil fuel industry, are threatening to stop clean energy in its tracks.
“We’re looking for smart, hard-working students to build the people power it will take to repower Massachusetts with clean energy. Interns will work 4-7 hours per week from campus.”
