The Environmental Careers Network (ECN) is an initiative to help American University students learn about environmental policy work from career professionals. Developed by a partnership between SPA's Center for Environmental Policy and AU's Career Center, the network provides an opportunity for students to meet environmental professionals from outside of academia for informational interviews. Self-directed students may use this program to learn about career opportunities, improve their interview skills, and receive feedback on their resumes.

AU students are encouraged to select who they would like to meet based on the profiles posted on this site, and work with through opportunities offered via the Career Center.

If you would like to  learn more about the Environmental Careers Network, please email Center for Environmental Policy Program Director, Danielle Miller Wagner, at djmwagner@american.edu. Please use the subject line ECN.
