Green Leaders Building a Green Future

Our students consistently use the knowledge they gain here to pursue successful green careers. 

Sustainable UMass alums have gone on to pursue work in the green economy as environmental educators, energy conservation specialists, sustainability consultants, community organizers, public policy analysts, and more with non-profit, private, and government organizations like Harvard University, the Union of Concerned Scientists, University of Cambridge, the Center for Ecotechnology, the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, and others.
