PSM Advisory Board

The GLES Master’s of Science (MS) program seeks to have an active and engaged Professional Science Master's (PSM) advisory board of leaders from industry, business, government, or non‐profit organizations. 

 

GLES PSM Advisory Board members provide feedback about the program’s curriculum and professional activities. The primary role of an advisory board member is to attend one to two meetings per year to provide on-going feedback on program curriculum and input on the needs of today’s environmental science professionals. Additional responsibilities include but are not limited to: 1) contributing to courses through assisting with student projects, guest lecturing, or offering a course as an adjunct instructor; 2) hosting GLES MS students as interns at their organizations; and 3) supporting the program by recruiting new students and agency partners by providing community outreach.
