Duke’s Nicholas School of the Environment Information Session

Uncategorized No Comments »

Duke’s Nicholas School is a School of the Environment – not Environmental Sciences, or Environmental Studies, but the Environment. We strive for a new paradigm, one that views and attempts to understand the earth and the environment including humans as an integrated whole. And one that advances a more sustainable future by strategically focusing its resources on addressing the major environmental issues of our times and by training a new and environmentally-informed generation of global leaders.
We offer a professional masters’ program that trains a new breed of environmental professionals working in the public, private, and non-profit sectors with the skills needed to devise and implement effective environmental policies and practices. Our renowned residential Master of Environmental Management (MEM) and Master in Forestry (MF) program teaches students how to analyze and manage natural environments for human benefit and ecosystem health.

4:00 to 5:00 PM in the CDC Conference Room, Starbuck 203

    HPAC Photo Contest

    Uncategorized No Comments »

    The Skidmore Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC) is going to be launching its new website, and we need your help!  During the month of March, we are asking that students submit their health related photos for a chance to be featured on the HPAC Website. While photos taken at Skidmore will be accepted, preference will be given to photos that have been taken off-campus.  Think about your summer internships, shadowing opportunities, medical mission trips, and research projects. We want to see you in action!

    The top three photos will receive a gift card:

    • First place: $20 gift card to Uncommon Grounds
    • 2nd and 3rd place will receive a $10 gift card to Plum Dandy.

    All you have to do to enter is submit your photos using #SkidHPAC on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram from March 1-March 31.  We’ll contact the winners in April.

    Good Luck!
