The most pressing challenges of our times require an understanding of the ways the environment sustains and intersects with every facet of our lives – science, technology, human health, war and peace, politics and culture. The Environmental Fellows Program prepares students to deal with this complexity.
Fellows learn how to approach environmental questions from a multidisciplinary perspective by taking environmentally focused classes from a variety of departments across campus.
In addition to many co-curricular activities, all fellows have a full semester Field Experience that complements their academic program.
Fellows have numerous opportunities to develop their leadership abilities, highlighted by their work with other members of their cohort to develop a theme for a series of co-curricular activities that they will host in their junior year.
We strive to create a sense of community within the program focusing on our similar academic interests, and learn from one another through the diversity of our experiences.
