Advisory Board

The Department of Earth & Environmental Science and the College of Liberal and Professional Studies are committed to providing the highest quality academic preparation for graduate students seeking professional careers or advancement in environmental studies. We constantly strive to keep abreast of trends in this interdisciplinary field and to that end we have established the External Advisory Board in Earth & Environmental Science made up of accomplished professionals at the forefront of their industries. This group meets quarterly with the department to discuss trends in employment, required skills, and academic preparation needed in their fields. Members of this board represent a wide range of fields including corporate sustainability, environmental education, and urban forestry. Recent recommendations from the board have resulted in implementation of an optional but highly recommended professional writing course, opportunities for Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) certification for sustainability students, and OSHA 40 hour HAZWOPER certification for students interested in environmental consulting.
