SRES professoriate at graduation

How many of us can fit into a little car?

Yesterday we saw our most recent class of Master of Environmental Studies (MES) and Master of Resource and Environmental Management (MREM) graduands across the stage. Simon Greenland-Smith was among these, receiving his MES for SSHRC-funded research with Annapolis Valley farmers about their wetland perceptions and management practices. I was also pleased to see shining lights from my teaching of environment into the first year of the Bachelor of Management, like Rodney Small, finally receiving their degrees. All six SRES professors were on the stage, an uncommon event. The turnout was caused in part by the reception SRES hosted afterward, marking the graduation of our tenth MREM cohort. Wonderful to welcome our graduands and their friends and family as well as MREM alumni and past employers. We have just completed a survey of MREM alumni with a 37.5% response rate, undertaken to inform a curriculum review. A decade is a great time to reflect on what we do, and how we do it.
