Educating people about their natural and altered environment is the first step in bringing about any successful change. The teaching and research programs sponsored by the Institute promote interdisciplinary approaches to environmental education. Scholars in physical and social sciences actively seek the latest information, ideas, and innovations for the classroom, constantly adding revisions to instructional material to correspond with the latest findings in the field. AUEI affiliated faculty comes from every college and school on the Auburn University campus. New teaching curricula in environmentally-related areas are also being promoted through the Institute. While building a solid core of understanding on environmental issues is crucial to students, so is creating educational programs to communicate environmental awareness to Alabama citizens. The Institute is committed to serving the educational needs at all levels of instruction.
A postgraduate internship project is available at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Water in Washington, D.C. This internship will be served in the Water Permits Division (WPD).
Applicants must have received a bachelor’s or master’s degree in environmental science, engineering, biology, or economics within five years of the desired starting date, or completion of all requirements for the degree should be expected prior to the starting date.
The annual stipend will range from $52,000 to $63,000 depending on educational level and experience.
