Environmental Professional Career Network – new EPA mentorship program

The Department of Environmental Science and Policy is pleased to announce the launch of a new mentorship initiative known as the Environmental Professional Career Network (EPCN). This initiative is being offered to incoming and returning ESP students.  It was the brainchild of affiliate faculty member Colonel (Retired) Reginald E. Allen, who is a member of the United States Government Senior Executive Service (SES) and is Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) headquarters in Washington, DC. He is currently on a one year detail as an Executive-in-Residence, Affiliate Professor at George Mason University.

Reggie Allen has put together an impressive group of EPA professionals who have kindly volunteered to become part of the EPCN network.  You can read more about EPCN and its mission, view the list of professional mentors and read their brief bios here: https://esp.gmu.edu/students/environmental-professional-career-network/
