3. Environmental and Sustainable Development Programs Open House Monday, October 24, 2011, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Rotunda of Low Library
On behalf of the Earth Institute, Columbia University, you are invited to attend the annual Environmental and Sustainable Development Programs Open House on Monday, October 24, 2011, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Rotunda of Low Library on Columbia University’s Morningside campus (116th and Broadway).

If you are interested in environmental policy, climate change or sustainability management, Columbia has many programs for you, from undergraduate to graduate programs and from certificate programs to study abroad. Come learn about the innovative degree programs like the M.S. in Sustainability Management, specifically designed to meet the growing demand for sustainability managers by training leaders to bridge the gap between the principle of sustainable management and its practice, and the MPA in Environmental Science and Policy, which combines Columbia University’s hands-on approach to teaching public policy and administration with the Earth Institute’s pioneering thinking about environmental sustainability.

You can learn about the other nearly 30 degree and non-degree offerings Columbia has related to the environment and sustainable development. This event will provide you with the opportunity to meet with representatives from each of these programs. We encourage you to spread the word about this Open House to friends and colleagues who might be interested in our academic programs.

To RSVP for this event please click Open House. For more information please contact me at ei-students@ei.columbia.edu or call (212) 854-8158. Additional information about the Earth Institute’s academic programs can also be found at http://www.earth.columbia.edu/education .
