GREEN-SJ: Partnering in your Environmental Future at Rowan University

What is GREEN-SJ?

Green-SJ is a program within the Department of Environmental Science (ES) at Rowan University funded by the National Science Foundation to foster greater diversity in the geosciences and provide a home base for transfer students and existing ES majors at Rowan from communities traditionally underrepresented in science and math.  Green-SJ supports transfer students who have to adapt to a new school and new professors as they earn a Bachelor's degree at Rowan and offers Environmental Science majors already at Rowan the opportunity to get more out of their undergraduate experience.  GREEN-SJ provides opportunities to work in labs, tutor peers, and pursue internships, while earning the credits and salary students need to achieve their educational goals, all within a supportive community focused on their success at Rowan and beyond.

What are the benefits?

  • Professional development and workforce training
  • Scientist mentors from underrepresented groups
  • Up to 6 credits of tuition for students transferring into Rowan University Environmental Science
  • Internships in Southern NJ's premier environmental firms
  • Research opportunities in Rowan University Environmental Science laboratories
  • A strong professional network already in place upon graduation
