The Ecosystem Workforce Program (EWP) is an applied social science research and extension program built on the fundamental belief that ecology, economy, and governance are interconnected.
EWP is a joint program of IROCE at the University of Oregon and the College of Forestry at Oregon State University. This unique partnership allows Oregon’s two leading universities to collectively contribute to natural resource governance that fosters prosperity and sustainability.
Together, we apply scientific expertise and leadership to produce better outcomes for land and people.

Students from departments across UO work with EWP faculty to assist with EWP research, collaborative project coordination, web design and maintenance, and general office support.
We provide UO graduate and undergraduate students with experiential education through work study employment, paid and unpaid internships, independent study, and graduate employment (GE positions). These opportunities advance students' understanding and technical skills through participation in real projects. Available opportunities vary with projects.
