Suzanne Schaffer, majoring in Environment & Society, earned a Certificate in Civic Engagment along with her major and graduated on May 5th with her UAA classmates.
Suzanne is dedicated to a sustainable environment, and her program reflects that. Her most recent project was working on a community engagement project in CEL A392, Advanced Civic Engagement: Community Inquiry & Action, assisting the Municipality of Anchorage in their survey of community councils. With a background in courses ranged from Environmental Ethics to Conservational Biology and International Environmental Issues, Suzanne will be a contribution wherever she goes! And she's a demonstration for sustainability too -- she commuted to school all winter by bike and bus until her bike was stolen in early spring. All of our congratualtions and best wishes to Suzanne as she goes forward in her work or further education!
