Campus Opportunities

Open Call

Students should submit a proposal describing an original project they would like to do related to campus sustainability. Projects must have the goal of furthering understanding or improving some aspect of campus sustainability, broadly conceived. Possible areas of focus include campus energy use, dining and food, Fair Trade, transportation, student learning and behavior change, access to the outdoors, and many others. We are especially interested in projects that focus on the social aspects of sustainability (climate justice, socioeconomic impacts, etc.).

Please submit a proposal using this link to the Google form for the open call. For these projects, students should complete the form after speaking with their faculty advisor. Students are encouraged to approach a faculty advisor for their project, but should also contact Brad Spanbauer, spanbauerb@uwosh.edu, for suggestions for faculty advisors to these projects. Feel free to discuss your potential ideas with Sustainability Director Brad Spanbauer or SIRT Director Stephanie Spehar before submission.  

Directed Sustainability Research Projects 

These are projects that have already been designed, and only need a willing student to help complete the work! For these projects, students should complete the form using this link to the Google form for the directed projects after speaking with their faculty advisor. Students are encouraged to approach a faculty advisor for their project, but should also contact Brad Spanbauer, spanbauerb@uwosh.edu, for suggestions for faculty advisors to these projects. 

Bee Hotels Study

In coordination with the UWO Grounds dept., the Student Green Fund supported funding for two bee hotels to be placed on the Oshkosh campus. To investigate the claim that bee hotels are good for the species they intend to support, we’d like to have a study conducted to determine species present in the hotels, as well as other factors related to disease spread, predation, and other variables that the investigator may choose to explore.  

 

Study Animal Lab Efficiency Study  

This project aims to holistically study better lab practices and efficiencies in an animal colony. There is evidence to suggest that lab practices in spaces where animals are kept for research could be improved to not only reduce costs and resource use, but to also improve the health and wellness of the research animals. This project will provide the opportunity to conduct a study that comprises regulatory standards, an animal environment, microbial testing, cost-benefit analyses, ergonomics, etc. This individual must be willing to work in a lab with animals.  

 

Study Solar Prairie Installation Study 

Recently, UWO staff were asked to be involved in providing consultation to an Oshkosh-based company that plans to install a ground-mounted solar array in Oshkosh. Their interest is in having a ‘prairie’, native, or other beneficial vegetation planted under the panels. This study would examine the species of plants under the solar array, as well as other factors such as soil conditions and improvement of soil conditions, nutrient uptake, benefits to the panels such as evaporative cooling, and other variables that the investigator may choose to explore. 

On-Campus Environmental Research Opportunity
Brad Spanbauer and Misty McPhee are looking for some students to collect bird strike data on campus from mid-April to the end of the semester.  Data collection will happen (hopefully) every morning and usually takes about an hour.  Data have to be collected sometime between 6 and 9 am.  You can either volunteer for as much time as you want or you can participate for credit.  The credit option will involve data analysis and writing. Contact Misty at mcpheem@uwosh.edu if you are interested. 

Consider Getting Vaccinated

If you haven’t yet received a vaccine or a booster shot, please consider doing so!  You can read the updated chancellor’s order here about masks.

Citizens Climate Lobby 

Citizens’ Climate Lobby promotes policies to put a price on carbon.  The Oshkosh chapter is looking for a volunteer Student Coordinator to promote Oshkosh CCL calls to action and programs to the UWO campuses.  There are also opportunities to assist in developing and coordinating climate action programs, lobbying, attending conferences, and working as a liaison for local politicians.  Historically, student funding has been available for in person events.

Brad Spanbauer, the UW Oshkosh Campus Sustainability Director, will talk about the efforts UW Oshkosh is making to reduce its carbon footprint. We will also share news about CCL’s support of a carbon fee and dividend. Email oshkoshccl@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link for the meeting.
Learn more about Citizens’ Climate Lobby here. 

Meetings: Fourth Wednesday of each month  

Time: 6:00-7:00pm 

Location: Virtual  


Student Environmental Action Coalition (SEAC): Students in the Student Environmental Action Coalition (SEAC) haven’t let the pandemic slow them down–they are still working hard to make our campus and community more sustainable. SEAC strives to implement more green initiatives on campus, as well as aiding in organizing Free School in the spring semester. SEAC prioritizes environmental issues and community outreach, making it a perfect place to meet other students who share common interests! Those interested should contact SEAC president Caroline Adams at adamsc06@uwosh.edu to get involved.

Wildlife Conservation Club: Care about wildlife and want to work in wildlife conservation? Consider joining the Wildlife Conservation Club!  The WCC’s mission is to promote and educate members and the campus community on wildlife management and conservation through collaborations with area experts and hands-on activities. We define wildlife as all flora and fauna from mega-vertebrates to micro invertebrates and we want to promote conservation on an ecosystem level. Contact club president  Shawna Jackson, jackss85@uwosh.edu, or faculty advisor Dr. Misty McPhee, mcpheem@uwosh.edu. 

Sustainable Beekeeping Club : The beekeeping club will be partnered with the recently approved Sustainable Beekeeping Project that will install and maintain two honeybee hives on campus. This club aims to generate student interest in beekeeping, learning beekeeping skills by helping to maintain the hives, and understanding the roles and values of pollinators in the ecosystem. In accordance with the campus sustainability initiative, natural (i.e. organic) beekeeping methods will be used, so students will become familiar with the benefits and challenges of natural beekeeping methods.  This will be beneficial to our campus sustainability mission as the bees pollinate the plants on campus and surrounding areas, and the hives will raise awareness of the value of keeping bees naturally in an urban setting.  Those interested in joining the club should email club president Eden Protheroe at prothe89@uwosh.edu

Wisconsin Green Fire Young Professionals & Student Work Group

Wisconsin’s Green Fire is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the conservation legacy of Wisconsin by promoting science-based management of Wisconsin’s natural resources. Within the organization are a host of work groups, composed of field experts that endeavor to advise conservation action with sound science.

Instead of being centered around an issue or topic, our workgroup is centered around our audience – emerging professionals. Just as proper deer management, informed climate change action, and environmental justice are vital to the sustainable future of our state, so too is ensuring that there will be a connected, diverse, and passionate next generation of professionals to carry the torch. Our mission is to help connect students and young professionals with the expertise and experience of Wisconsin’s Green Fire, developing relationships that will foster career advancement and ensure the continuation of Wisconsin’s conservation legacy. Ratified just this fall, we are excited to begin branching out and to connect with aspiring educators, communicators, researchers, policymakers, and natural resource professionals around Wisconsin.

Hydroponics Volunteer Positions

The Oshkosh Area Community Pantry (https://www.oacptoday.org/) is looking for one or more volunteers to help them. They have two Fork Farms hydroponics machines (https://forkfarms.com/) that they use to provide some fresh lettuce and spinach for their clients. They recently lost their main volunteer who ran these machines, but they have two others helping now. Volunteers would help with planting and harvesting plus filling the water, adding fertilizers, and cleaning the machines. If they had a couple more people they would be much more comfortable in their coverage. The OACP is on Jackson St less than 2 miles from campus and they would be looking for a few hours a week (or less maybe). Let Dr Kevin Crawford, crawfordk@uwosh.edu, know if you’d like an e-introduction to the contact person for this project or reach out directly to Elizabeth Turner at manager@oacptoday.org
