What made you want to come to Lewis & Clark?

When I first visited campus, it felt like a place I could belong and build a close community. The small class sizes and relationship with professors was important to me, and the extracurriculars and opportunities for students appealed to my interest in doing good for the world while having fun! Over my four years, I have appreciated my new friends, finding new spaces that allowed me to grow myself and foster new interests and skills, and being able to utilize the many opportunities Lewis & Clark provides, as I pursued my interests in sustainability and responsibility of businesses.

在哪些方面做了你 更改 作为ENVS的结果大?

在我在大环境的研究时,我已经获得了对环境的更为全面的理解,以及人们与环境的互动方式。我一直是一个体制的思想家,认为问题应该从高层得到解决,ENVS帮我编织在一起的个人和机构层面的方法。此外,ENVS帮助我更深入地了解标准的短语,如环境,可持续发展,责任和道德企业常用于环境研究的通信中使用的含义。作为第四年,没有一个可持续性或环保认证,程序和品牌宣传活动,我遇到不会让我想质疑嵌入所用的术语中的上下文。

什么是最大的 挑战 您在ENVS,最终是值得你把他们的努力?

类似的程序是如何改变了我的东西,我继续奋斗是利用特定的和有意的话。通信时什么可持续性的手段,或者是什么环境,就必须是具体的,是困难的。有时我觉得自己比较常用的一个词是,就越难是定义!因此,越来越清晰,故意在我的存在内部利益的复杂性一直是重要的,我要注意。

“是个拼命三郎!大部分我是一部分的社区和我所做的是,因为我即使我感到不确定我是否应该尝试一些后去的机会“。

你怎么编织你 经历外ENVS (例如,国外的节目,实习,在另一个部门为一个疗程)到您的ENVS专业?

作为一个双主修国际事务真的帮了我专注于环境研究学科的国际方面,而我的政治经济未成年人帮我考虑经济政策的塑造,我们生活的这个世界(作为第一年的角色,我不牛逼认为我承认经济学的重要性)。该ENVS的做法已经是跨学科的,但我的第二个主要的和次要的帮助国内外范式框架之内我自己ENVS的理解。此外,我与艾米德沃夏克在可持续发展办公室合作,完成了学校的可持续发展审计这有助于扩大我的技术技能和进一步发展自己的实施ENVS到了职业生涯的兴趣。

什么是一件事你是在你的骄傲 ENVS顶峰 你刚刚完成,你认为它可能会在将来的?

我ENVS荣誉顶峰的项目,名为B-荷兰国际集团更好的业务:检查b CORP认证在俄勒冈州波特兰市负责任的商业行为的影响,研究重新验证B-军团在波特兰的景观。我感兴趣的是回答有关B-C要么P运动的效果如何建立激励机制的企业继续努力,以负责任的态度行事的问题。这不仅原创性研究提供有关认证的B-军团的总体趋势的新信息,但它帮助我理解我自己这样的自发努力的关系。我寻求与企业社会责任工作,这个顶点项目将帮助我找到的这类运动的失败。我的希望是,我可以继续这项工作努力提高通过我们的环境和工人的大公司处理的标准。

将这一一起:请问该短语 跨边界环境 适用于您自己的经验ENVS,并且你会从这些经验中发扬为你把你的生活下一步?

对我来说,环境的跨边界 是例证在我的课程ENVS内核心类,我的独立和赠款资助黛娜Dodds的项目审查可持续性认证的咖啡农场工人在坦桑尼亚的阿鲁沙,我使用WordPress和数字学术环境研究项目中的影响进行沟通我项目和过程我也跟着。

你有什么建议给未来的学生?

Be a go-getter! Most of the communities I’m a part of and the opportunities that I had were because I went after something even if I was feeling uncertain about whether I should try. Not everything works out—I certainly hit my fair share of dead ends. But I also found communities that supported my interests and passions. Also, to prospective students that don’t have a “passion,” I would tell you not to worry. I enjoyed taking classes in different disciplines—I had no idea I was interested in political economy (or knew what it was!) before attending L&C, and it’s become an integral part of the way I see the world today.

什么是生活在波特兰你最喜欢什么?

我喜欢所有的绿化和如何bikeable的城市。有很多伟大的面包店和咖啡店的。它已经很有趣生活在sellwood,河对面的校园。还有很多其他的LC人也在这里,我们已经创造了一个真正伟大的社会校外。

你是如何决定的重大?

I knew I was interested in environmental studies, which was one of the main reasons why I came to L&C. I wanted to protect the environment and the uneven impact that environmental issues have on different communities. However, after I took an IA class sophomore year, Human Rights and International Politics, I realized how important the international aspect was to this lense of environmental and social injustices. Between IA and ENVS I was able to create an academic experience that wove most of my interests together, and provided the most opportunities to develop new interests and lenses to view the world with.

What’s your best Lewis & Clark memory so far?

我有很多美好的回忆!我想从您的第一年的记忆总是玫瑰色和敬畏他们的色调,我当然有一个爆炸与我的新学生之旅 高校户外, where I met one of my best friends (and housemates today!). Also, presenting my independent research at Festival of Scholars junior year was rewarding—to take a pause from the daily grind and share my work with my friends and family and the school at large was really special. Though finishing my senior year with online classes during COVID-19 and completing both of my theses at home was pretty unexpected, it has been meaningful to create new forms of community (thank you Zoom and porch visits!) that instill some of the Lewis & Clark spirit.
