Sample comments provided by students and alumni

“… if it weren’t for his guidance, encouragement, tough love, and creative inspiration in the field of environmental education, there is no way I would have made it through my programs.”

“She poured herself into the curriculum providing an opportunity to really dive deep and explore the impacts of business; providing the breadth and depth required to address sustainability in the first place; I think how she approached the course is instrumental to the success of the program, so I thank her. She also took the time to address questions and provide valuable support both in and out of the classroom.”

“His time made a huge difference to me in the moment, as well as for my ongoing journey. He helped me get over the hump of fear and lack of confidence, helping me see myself as someone of value and capable of success.”

“… keeps us organized, is professional and knowledgeable and most important was a stable and calm person in a time that felt scary and uncertain. Not only did she consistently communicate via email but went out of her way to come and talk to us during residency and provide all the information she thought we might need to be successful. Her thoughtfulness, organization skills and professionalism and very, very, appreciated.”
