U.S. Green Building Council - Texas Chapter

Spring 2021

Position: Marketing and Communications Intern
Major: Geography & Sustainability Studies Junior
Name: Mercy Ogunlade

The U.S. Green Building Council is a community-based nonprofit that strives to build a greener Texas by uniting professionals from all fields including: construction, architects, teachers, and many more professions to host sustainability/green events, advocate for conservation laws, LEED study groups, and even community projects. The USGBC Texas chapter is just one amount the many chapters of USGBC nationwide. I found this internship by emailing Dr. Molly Polk about interest in being in her internship class for my majors, and she suggested this internship since I am very interested in Architecture and hope to apply to a Master’s in Architecture this Fall 2021. As the Marketing and Communications intern, some of my tasks included planning and organizing meetings for the communications committee, creating a weekly newsletter to send to the whole chapter, and planning events on the website calendar.
