Looking for Environmental Project Sponsors for UW Whitewater (UWW) Students

UWW is looking for organizations to be Environmental Project Sponsors for University of Wisconsin – Whitewater Students who will be enrolled in Safety 420: Principles of Environmental Management. It is an undergraduate course taught in Fall and Spring semesters to approximately 35 juniors and/or seniors. Most students are studying Occupational Safety, Environmental Science, Business, Geography, etc.

Students are required to complete two collaborative assignments in groups of up to four students. The course syllabus contains a list of approximately 25 project assignments. The Assignments have two rubrics: a general conditions rubric for all assignments, and specific rubric that contains specific requirements for each assignment. The rubrics allow students to have a certain amount of freedom in how they complete the assignment. Students are expected to put several days of effort for each assignment and prepare a written report or paper. Students may suggest an alternative project and/or do a paper with the approval of the instructor.

One of the prime reasons we are looking for Project Sponsors is to meet the desire to provide more hands-on environmental educational experience for the students. Possible assignments could be addressing a routine, new, or non-routine compliance matter, e.g., identifying required training, inspections, reports, record-keeping, summarizing a permit, preparing, reviewing, revising a procedure or training program, preparing a policy, assessing waste minimization, sustainability, energy conservation, etc. The project sponsor could review the course list or suggest his/her own project which may supplement work currently being done, something not being done, something lower on an organization’s priority list, etc. While the focus of the course is on environmental management, the scope could be expanded to look at broad Environmental, Health and Safety issues. Since there is a separate Safety Management course, these students would not be expected to solely focus on safety issues.

The instructor would work with project sponsor and students before, during and after the project is completed to ensure objectives were defined, understood and met. Students would meet with the project sponsor (and the instructor) at his/her site following a mutually agreed schedule consistent with class requirements. The Instructor would work with the project sponsor to develop the objectives/rubric, whether they were met, grading, etc.

We hope to start project sponsorships in September 2017. Since this is a pilot program, there may be some undefined and/or unanticipated issues (which we will address as they arise). If the program is successful, it will be continued and improved over time. Since the student work is part of a class, no monetary compensation is expected or desired. And we are not looking to replace any work that may be done in-house staff, outside consultants, interns, etc. The project sponsorships will be for educational purposes. We are willing to define and address expectations, on-site safety requirements, etc. Project sponsors may be able to identify possible candidates for potential future internships.

If you are interested in being a project sponsor or would like to learn more, please contact Bob Evangelisti at UW Whitewater at evangelr@uww.edu; 262-472-5423.
