Advisory Board

The Advisory Board for the Department of Environmental Studies consists of environmental professionals in the community and broader region who have vested interests in seeing our department function at the highest possible levels. All of the board members interact with the department in some capacity, e.g., research collaborations, hiring our graduates, involved alumni. The Board meets on an annual basis and advises on curricular, research, faculty hiring, and employment/internship issues.
