Orientation, Spring 2017

The Certificate in Sustainability welcomed 45 students, faculty, and staff for its Spring 2017 orientation session in the Miller Learning Center on February 20th. During the first half informational session, students were introduced to program requirements, capstone and portfolio projects, and a number of affiliated faculty members by the Certificate staff. Then, the Certificate in Sustainability introduced its first ever iteration of "peer leadership" groups, a new way of connecting students to each other within the Certificate. We finished the night off with wonderful food provided by Campus Catering and an informal networking session. Look out for updates regarding our next orientation session in Fall!
