Communication And Social Engagement (CASE) identifies and provides students at the University of Colorado opportunities to serve their communities in the interest of environmental sustainability and Communication scholarship.

CASE brings together scholars, practitioners, and students to work to understand and implement communication strategies for a more sustainable world. Together with its partners in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors, CASE serves as a source of support for outreach and education efforts. Coordinated by the University of Colorado Communication Department, the mission of CASE is to unite communication scholarship and current social and environmental problems, from climate change to diminishing reserves of natural resources, with students serving as the bridge between the two.

CASE is currently seeking undergraduate and graduate interns to assist local organizational partners with sustainability efforts. The program is looking for students who are passionate about environmental sustainability and communication. Students who serve as CASE interns will be eligible to apply for paid fellowships. CASE internships may also count toward course credit for Communication majors. Interested candidates or partners can visit the CASE website for more information about CASE and its internship opportunities: http://comm.colorado.edu/case/
