This program provides a small group of Gettysburg students (limited to 10-12 students) with a unique opportunity to gain a greater understanding of environmental policy and sustainability issues and to develop their leadership skills. These objectives are achieved through guided discussion sessions and readings, as well as real world experiences that are designed to expose students to environmental problems and solutions. Students are provided meaningful opportunities to interact with environmental policy leaders and to learn from leading scholars in the field. The program is open to all students who have an interest in environmental issues, regardless of their major or previous course work.
The substantive theme for the 2013-2014 program is "Environmental Sustainability." Students will consider the security impact: of natural resource scarcity, climate change, energy dependence, and environmental extremism, as well as the environmental impact of military operations and training.
