Ellie Mulder

A “Sustainable Futures Fair” will be held April 20, allowing students to explore career opportunities with over 40 companies in sustainability-related fields.

“We will be hosting a campus-wide networking/ career fair focused on connecting highly-qualified individuals that have similar values and vision,” said David Nocella, Student Sustainability Center career fair coordinator, in a letter about the event.


Companies attending the event will include The Colorado Renewable Energy Society, the Sustainable Living Association, Food and Water Watch, Ameri Corps, the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, Solar City, Vestas Wind Energy, Jax Sporting Goods and the Center for the New Energy Economy. The event will include sustainability-related career options for students of a variety of majors, according to its advertisements.

The event will begin with a panel discussion from 2 – 3 p.m. moderated by Fort Collins City Councilmember Bob Overbeck, followed by the career fair itself from 3 – 5 p.m.

Both will occur in LSC Ballroom A/B and are free and open to all students. Light refreshments will be provided, and the suggested attire is business casual. More information can be found on the CSU School of Global Sustainability’s website.
