Environmental Futures: Pathways to Impact

Join the Sustainability Graduate Programs and the Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability, in welcoming distinguished Wake Forest alumni and guests who have dedicated their lives to the environmental sector through jobs in leadership, policy, and protection.

Pro Humanitate, the Wake Forest motto, calls us to use our knowledge, talents, and compassion to better the lives of others. No matter your personal interpretation, the motto encourages us to leave a positive impact on the world. Consider the impact you want to have on the planet as this panel of experts shares insights from their own impactful careers in service to the environment. The panel will also discuss both the current and future states of environmental and sustainability fields. Grow your path beyond the Forest, but stay true to the principles of Pro Humanitate.
