LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Available for virtually all building, community and home project types, LEED provides a framework to create healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green buildings. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement.
Hope College is in the process of building its third LEED Certified building (Campus Ministries)and the Green Team is looking for a summer research intern to assist with the “Education” component of the certification and helping develop a program/platform for disseminating information about the project and engaging the campus community. The intent of this credit is “To provide public education focusing on green building strategies and solutions.”
The student will become familiar with LEED Education Point Criteria and assist with creation of the materials to accomplish the requirement. The start date is slightly flexible but should be arranged in advance and should be included in your cover letter.
