Boston College’s Environmental Studies Program seeking alumni participation in brown bag lunches

In Spring 2019, Boston College’s Environmental Studies Program will be hosting a series of brown bag lunches on Fridays at Boston College. The Environmental Studies Program is an interdisciplinary major and minor program with focuses in environmental policy, social justice, economics, sustainable food and water systems, and climate change adaptation. At each lunch alumni will speak about their careers in the environmental field, with a Q&A session following. Our aim is to complement the breadth of the Environmental Studies Program with discussion of the breadth of career possibilities in the field.

Brown bag lunch dates include:

  • Friday, February 1, 12-1pm
  • Friday, March 1, 12-1pm
  • Friday, April 5, 12-1pm
