Community is at our core. MENV faculty members are practitioners in their areas of specialization, bringing first-hand knowledge and experiences to students inside and outside of the classroom. MENV program administrators have worked in higher education spaces for years, ensuring they can support each student in their jounrey through the program and beyond. Together, they cultivate a sense of community that fosters our future environmental leaders. 

A note for prospective students: As a cohort-based program, it is not required that you reach out to/secure the support of a faculty member prior to applying to MENV. During the application process, you will be asked which specialization you would like to pursue and from there, upon enrollment, be assigned to a Specialization Lead based on that selection.
