This was the first year of the Environmental Leadership Mentoring (ELM) Program at F&ES. This ambitious new mentoring program connected 102 students in their final year at F&ES with alumni mentors. The ELM Program aims to help F&ES students grow professionally through the guidance and advice of alumni, helping them to become environmental leaders and managers in today’s world. Thank you to the alumni who participated in the program and who helped make this inaugural year a success!

“I hope that more alumni will choose to join the ranks of ELM mentors. Not only is this an effective way to share your experience and continue to engage with the great people of F&ES, but it also offers alumni an opportunity to further develop their skills as mentors, making them better ambassadors for the environment in all contexts.”

F&ES Alumni Cookbook 2015

Nearly 150 recipes were shared by generous F&ES alumni, along with stories and photos, to create this new online cookbook.

“I think the variety of recipes is representative of the diversity and spirit of F&ES and hope that many people have the occasion to read and utilize the stories and recipes that alumni provided.”

—Karin Bucht ’15 M.F.
Member of Cookbook Development Team

Alumni Events

We currently have listservs set up for F&ES alums in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. We are considering adding additional listservs in places where there are larger groups of alums, including internationally. Events, job opportunities, housing information, questions, and more get posted. The online groups are only accessible by F&ES alums and students.

If you are living in one of these areas, we invite you to join!
