GEP in Action

Global Environmental Policy students tackle the toughest challenges our natural world faces. Opportunities abound for our students to advocate for and contribute to positive environmental change, including experience-based learning, semesters abroad, and frequent climate and energy events in Washington, DC.

GEP degree students work closely with Natural Resources and Sustainable Development degree students; together, they make up the larger Global Environmental Politics program at SIS.

The SIS Graduate Student Council (GSC) is committed to providing professional development, advocating for graduate students, and building a school-wide community. GSC provides opportunities to graduate students to plan and participate in social and professional development events, serve on school committees, advocate for themselves and their peers, and generally have their voices heard in the SIS administration. With a team of senators representing the various programs at the School of International Service and a dedicated Executive Council, the GSC strives to be a leader both inside and outside American University.
