Welcome to the School of the Environment. My name is Mark Swanson, and I am the Associate Director for Graduate Programs (August 2016- present). An important part of our mission here is to provide world-class graduate education in earth sciences, wildlife ecology, natural resource sciences, and environmental sciences. Graduate students are centrally and crucially important to our mission here in the School of the Environment through their partnership with us in research, teaching, and the maintenance of a vibrant academic community.
As your Associate Director, I strive to ensure that your graduate education experience prepares you for a productive and impactful career, or for further graduate study. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about graduate studies in the School of the Environment or our tremendous team of faculty and staff. I invite you to explore our specific graduate programs in the pages linked to the right!
