With spring quarter and commencement behind us, the Center’s interns are heading out to begin their adventures across the West as part of the university’s Cardinal Quarter initiative. This year, we are supporting 15 extraordinary undergraduates, co-terms, and graduate students, who will be spending the summer at national parks, nature conservancies, nongovernmental organizations, state regulatory agencies and research institutes. They range from Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering majors to ardent equestrians and students of Art History and 17th-century poetry.
As the summer goes on, they will share their experiences and perspectives on our Out West student blog, which will also feature dispatches from the Stanford Energy Internships in California and Colorado, a program we cosponsor with the Stanford Precourt Institute for Energy.
