Claire Mai: Sustainability Champion

The Office of Sustainability has a dynamic team of interns who help drive the vision, organizational strategy, and leadership for advancing operational and cultural sustainability efforts at Washington University. This week, we continue our series of feature pos on each intern’s background and accomplishments.

Claire Mai is one of two superstar food team interns. She is a senior majoring in International Studies, with a dual minor in Environmental Earth Science and Spanish. Claire began working with the Office as a Green Office program intern in 2014. She rejoined the Office after spending a semester abroad in Spain. Her food team projects include researching local community supported agriculture programs and developing messaging and outreach strategies for the Green Monday campaign.

In addition to interning with the Office, Claire is passionate about educational engagement with the outdoors and has served as a Steering Committee member for the Wilderness Project pre-orientation. She is particularly interested in environmental remediation efforts, as well as sustainable development initiatives and agricultural practices in other regions of the world.
