With the budding of spring in Ann Arbor comes the excitement of graduation celebrations at the School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS). The culmination of all the hard work the students have put into earning their degrees makes us pause and admire our passionate leaders who are committed to making the world a better place. This class, in particular, navigated challenges that nobody expected due to the global pandemic. We have watched in awe and with pride as they overcame obstacles and curveballs and kept their sights on a shared commitment to building a more sustainable and just world. They came to SEAS with all the talent in the world, and are leaving with the best training and network available. Their insights, energy, and expertise will solve the most pressing issues on the planet, and we can’t wait to hear about all their positive impact and accomplishments.
Here, we feature stories about eight master’s students, one from each of the SEAS specializations. Read through them to find out where these students got their start, why they decided to pursue an MS or MLA at SEAS and the impact that this experience has had on them, and where they are headed next.
Congratulations to the Class of 2022! GO BLUE!
