Hired in May 2015, Minna Brown was brought on as FES's new Case Study Integration Manager to serve as a resource in identifying, developing, and assisting with the incorporation of applied case studies into FES curriculum. Working collaboratively with faculty, students, and alumni, Minna builds comprehensive, academically sound, interdisciplinary online case studies covering subjects such as the impacts of palm oil in Indonesia, approaches to urban climate change adaptation, and compromises over water rights in the Klamath River basin. She also provides resources for student case study development and curates a collection of external case studies for FES use. Minna is a recent graduate of FES, where her MEM studies focused on environmental communication and climate change. Prior to FES, Minna directed online marketing and outreach teams for climate advocacy groups and digital consulting firms. She holds a B.A. in Sociology and Anthropology from Middlebury College.
