Sussman Internship Reports
|Alliance for the Great Lakes||
Sarah Geise intered at Alliance for the Great Lakes and focused on policy and planning for separation of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins to prevent transfers of aquatic invasive species with a heavy emphasis on public messaging. Side projects included social media outreach, a bi-state coastal restoration planning project and database use. Writing for the general public and GIS analysis were important aspects of this internship and it was a very rewarding first experience for Sarah to work with a non-profit/NGO.
|City of Ann Arbor Energy Office||
In this internship Laura Palombi engaged and coordinated internal and external stakeholders to develop energy efficiency financing programs for the City of Ann Arbor's Energy Office.
|The Sonoran Institute||
David Eisenhauer worked on issues related to rural land use--particularly rangeland management. A majority of his time was spent researching markets for tourism that centers around agriculture, otherwise known as agritourism. Later he worked on a report detailing current work related to co-management of rangelands. In these institutional arrangements, local users collaborate with governmental agencies, key stakeholders, and interest groups to manage both private and public lands.
|World Resources Institute||
Lilly Connett spent her summer working in the Markets and Enterprise Program (MEP) of the World Resource Institute (WRI).
