COVID-19 Disclaimer: The impacts of COVID-19 have been felt far and wide by many. MENV’s Class of (December) 2019 graduated at a unique time, starting their job search at the beginning of a worldwide pandemic. As a result, the employment rate for Class of 2019 is significantly lower than previous years. For example, the employment rate for Class of 2018 was 89%, compared to the employment rate for Class of 2019, which was 76%. The MENV program seeks to provide complete and transparent employment data, which can be found below. Should you have any questions regarding these data, please do not hesitate to reach out to MENV’s Employer & Alumni Engagement Manager, Rachel Bigby at rachel.bigby@colorado.edu.
