MPA Environmental Science and Policy, Fall 2003 Final workshop briefings.
This past Wednesday, October 22, 2003 the students
in the Master of Public Administration Program in Environmental
Science and Policy presented their Midterm Briefings for the
Workshop in Applied Earth Systems Management II. Our students have
been learning about three pieces of environmental legislation and
one international agreement: The Underground Storage Tank Compliance
Act of 2003, The Clear Skies Act of 2003, the proposed Alien Species
International Agreement and the Climate Stewardship Act of 2003. The
fall workshop is a management simulation where students take an
international agreement or piece of legislation that has not yet
been enacted, assume it has become law and develop a plan for
implementing the program starting in January of the following year.
