Student participation in the life of the department is supported by the Student ENST Steering Committee. Please contact the chair if you are interested in serving, with questions, or with your suggestions for the group!
The Student Environmental Studies Steering Committee is a group of 3-5 ENST majors responsible for helping to foster a shared sense of community in the department. Students on the committee are asked to solicit majors for feedback regarding the needs and views of majors, provide feedback concerning open faculty positions, and plan gatherings and events.
The ENST chair and the departmental ADC serve in advisory roles to assist and support the work of the committee. Some examples of events include a Welcome Back Gathering in the fall, a Meet and Greet event for prospective majors (typically held prior to pre-registration), and an End of Year Celebration in May. In addition to these occasions, students are encouraged to consider other activities to strengthen community both among majors and between students and faculty in Environmental Studies.
Membership on the committee is open to all declared Environmental Studies majors and is expected to represent the diverse spectrum of students in the department, including participation of students across class years. For more information or to express interest, please reach out to the Chair, Ted Melillo or the Academic Department Coordinator, Diane Hutton.
