Three College Collaboration Offers Wintersession Program on Sustainability

October 11, 2012

Four Students from Each College Form Team to Advise Sustainability Firm

The Three-College Wintersession Program is a free program in which four students each from Babson, Wellesley, and Olin work together as a team of advisors to help an organization that creates lasting social value using their diverse set of skills and perspectives. Participants will live together for two weeks in a Babson dorm,  work at Olin College during the day, and have all of their meals provided by the program.

The Three-College Wintersession Program started two years ago with a project related to pedagogy at the three colleges. Last year the team worked together to help Zimba, an MIT-based startup led by Laura Stupin that was doing field tests in India, to help properly chlorinate water.

This year, the Three-College Wintersession Program is partnering with Practically Green, a Boston-based sustainability firm. Practically Green is a young, dynamic company that works with different communities to engage members in practical sustainable living through innovative, fun social networking. The Three-College team will work closely with Practically Green to help develop its presence on college campuses.

Students interested in participating should fill out the application at by Thursday, October 25. (The deadline has been extended one week). Any questions can be directed to R. Ely at
