A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive experience(s) offered by the institution:

Bridgewater's study abroad experiences overseas can be sustainability-focused if the student chooses it to be. The only one that is set to have an environmental sustainability/ environmental science theme and purpose is the India study abroad.
We also have a specific on-campus environmental sustainability internship with Teshome Molalenge in the Center for Sustainability. Currently this internship focuses on collecting information and data for the STARS program, but later on will allow the student to come up with a sustainability project that they will spend the semester implementing on campus, hopefully for long-term results.

In addition, the College has just approved our participation in the Smithsonian-Mason Semester for Conservation Studies where students will study species conservation at the Smithsonian Conservation Research Center in Front Royal, Va. We will send our first students in the fall of 2013.
