Job Summary
A project intermediate manager is being sought to coordinate the activities of a JPB Foundation grant as well as multicultural programming in the School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS). In 2016, SEAS launched two diversity programs. The first was aimed at undergraduates – the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program (DDCSP). DDCSP provides two eight-week summer research and internship opportunities for diverse students interested in environmental issues; scholars spend both summers in Ann Arbor either researching with scientists or doing internships in local environmental organizations. The second program, the Environmental Fellows Program (EFP), is a graduate internship program that places diverse master’s and doctoral students in environmental grantmaking foundations as well as other environmental organizations for a 12-week summer internship. The JPB grant will partially fund post-program support for participants in these two diversity programs as well as support for related programs. JPB grant funding will also support networking and pipeline-building activities aimed at linking these two programs as well as similar diversity programs more explicitly and strengthening the ties between them.

Working in collaboration with the Environmental Grantmakers Association (EGA), the Mott Foundation, and the JPB Foundation, SEAS is developing diversity programs aimed at bringing more students currently underrepresented in the environmental field into the conservation arena. We build on the conservation experiences students currently have and introduce them to new ones by providing experiential learning opportunities to stimulate interest for the field. The DDCSP and EFP seek to increase diversity in the conservation workforce by recruiting, engaging, and inspiring diverse cohorts of undergraduate and graduate scholars in research and experiential immersion program that incorporates minority history, culture, and experiences into their understanding of conservation practices. Program participants are recruited and drawn from universities from around the country. The principal investigator is Dorceta E. Taylor of SEAS.
