Friday, August 31, 2018

Stanford students took an in-depth look at some of the diverse pathways available for sustainability professionals, from Stanford's own sustainability professionals, in a new spring course offered through the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences. Fahmida Ahmed-Bangert, Director of Sustainability and Business Services within the Department of Sustainability and Energy Management taught the Pathways in Sustainability class to an inaugural cohort of 12 students. The class included guest speakers from across a multitude of industries related to sustainability, who enlightened students about their career development and decision points, as well as lifestyle impacts that came along the way. Participating students commented that the class provided "eye-opening insights" and "a fabulous way to get exposure and contacts" in the field of interdisciplenary sustainability.
