Student employment job description

Creative Assistant Producer

Project Assistant/Student Researcher

"When I began working for the State of the Rockies, I immediately learned the importance of the project. Combining research, information, and education to improve awareness of environmental issues in the Rocky Mountain West; State of the Rockies makes a difference. Since joining the team, I have been able to integrate my passion for art and graphic design with this mission. This summer, I am a project assistant for the team researching regrowth in the Waldo Canyon burn scar and a graphic designer for the Anthropogenic. I believe that no other job would allow me to work on projects that are as deeply important, interconnected, collaborative, and fun as the State of the Rockies!"  —  Macy McCauley '26 (from Loveland, CO),  Education major
