Environmental Science Program Receives Grant

$1,500 Award Is From the Michigan Association of Environmental Professionals

Siena Heights University’s Environmental Science Program was recently awarded a $1,500 grant from the Michigan Association of Environmental Professionals. The award will help augment classroom learning with exposure to real-world challenges, according to Heather Moody, coordinator of SHU’s Environmental Science program.

 

Educational objectives for professional development include the following:

  • Provide real-world experience in understanding complex environmental issues and regulations
  • Ensure the currency and transferability of skills and knowledge presented in the classroom
  • Provide students exposure to different types of environmental careers
  • Enhance students’ future employability by fostering relationships between the students and professionals in the environmental community
  • Take learning opportunities and projects back to the classroom for a real-world and hands-on problem solving experience where skills and knowledge may be applied
  • Expose students to the culture of work and specifically the language, demeanor and dress needed to prepare them for a career in the environmental field

 

Siena Heights received the award Nov. 28 at the MAEP annual meeting in Ann Arbor, Mich.
