Every year, graduate students at the School of the Environment elect an Executive to lead the Graduate Environmental Students’ Association. Running for a GESA position is a great way to become involved with the vibrant interdisciplinary community at the School. We encourage graduate students enrolled in the School’s collaborative programs to participate and vote!
