QuEST welcomes both incoming and returning trainees to campus! The traineeship is all about engaging in community building, peer-to-peer mentoring, and interest group networks. Activities like the UVM Ropes course begins the collaboration across disciplines. The graduate students attend a weekly seminar where they are learning how the use of improv can bridge communication across the sciences. They have also identified three research areas (i.e., climate change predictions, disease – epidemiology, socio-environmental) and are working together determining three guest speakers who will visit campus to conduct 90-minute workshops and lectures.
