Alumni Experiences at EICES

Lois A. Levin, PhD, Clinical Psychologist/Conservation Psychologist, Environment Editor
“The Certificate Program allowed me to reinvent myself. I learned so much from seminar-like classes, top-notch instructors and an eclectic group of thoughtful and motivated fellow-students. Commuting from Boston was complicated, but I count it among my most valuable educational experiences.”

Kristin Hegazy, Web Editor, Humane Society International
“I feel so fortunate to have found the Certificate Program. Not only did I tremendously enjoy every class I attended, but having this credential on my resume allowed me to successfully turn my career toward doing marketing for nonprofit environmental organizations, exactly as I had hoped it would.”

Kelly Overton, Senior Advisor for Animal Rights International, Founder and Board Chair of People Protecting Animals and Their Habitats (PATH)
“The program was both the most valuable and most enjoyable of my education experiences. Because of this program I understand how economics, science, politics and nature all play a role in conservation and I am more effective in designing programs and attaining positive results because of this. The skills I gathered and the people I met changed my professional career and was the most positive experience of my academic career.”
