MES in the Community

  • “There is an amazing confluence of smart, dedicated people in the Philadelphia area who want to do good work for the environment—and I’m thrilled my job is a part of that,” shares Jesse Buerk (Master of Environmental Studies ’08), Senior Capital Program Coordinator for the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC).

  • “While I was student teaching, my students told me ‘Ms. Aziz, you’re a different person when you interact with plants.’ They inspired me to come to the Master of Environmental Studies (MES) at Penn,” shares Tasnim Aziz.

  • “I’ve always been curious about the world around me,” shares Elizabeth Madara (Master of Environmental Studies ‘12). “Growing up, my parents had a rule that if the sun was out, so were we.”

  • “The environment is the gateway to full civic participation,” shares Katera Moore (Master of Environmental Studies ’06), “Studying at Penn allowed me to merge my passion for cities, the environment and people.”

  • “Philadelphia is a great laboratory. There are so many examples of green infrastructure and sustainability at work,” Sara King (Master of Environmental Studies ’11) shares about studying and working at the University of Pennsylvania.
