The rapid proliferation of new degree programs for environmental professionals has created a termendous diversity in 1) intended outcomes, 2) the interpretation of environmental studies vs. environmental science, 3) balancing breadth and depth in programs, 4) capstone activities, and 5) innovative interdisciplinary pedagogy and curriculum.

We would like to establish a network, through a meeting, a public website, and a white paper or manuscript.

We didn't have enough to time to collaboratively refine this idea, so no budget yet.
