Ashley Eaton Creates Water Education Practicum

to Catalyze Change as Leadership for Sustainability Graduate Student

As a second-year master’s student in natural resources at the University of Vermont, Ashley Eaton is part of the “first batch,” or inaugural cohort, of the concentration in Leadership for Sustainability (MSLS) in the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources. The interdisciplinary MSLS curriculum, designed for emerging leaders in the field of sustainability, gave Ashley and the cohort of 12 students the opportunity to take place-based immersion courses in the ecologically rich and diverse locations of Washington, DC; the Bay Area of California; and Shelburne, Vermont. Through these place-based courses, MSLS students were able to directly connect with MSLS professional affiliates.
