"The theoretical and practical training from BCEP was key to my entry into international development. My con-sulting assignments for international financial institutions vary from climate change planning to environmental impact mitigation to urban development in Latin America and East Africa - all have required a holistic approach and a firm grounding in understanding economic, political, technical and community angles to develop sustain-able solutions with government and donor clients."

Oreintation and Workshop Week
Incoming students are introduced to the faculty and CEP's thematic teaching approach through orientation week workshops held in the first week of each academic year. During this time, the historic Hudson Valley is used as a forum to discuss critical policy issues, as well as to illustrate features of the natural and built environments that will be further examined in the first-year courses.
During field trips to sites of major environmental interest and controversy, students meet with professional staff in key government, corporate, and nonprofit institutions. Summer readings prepare students for the lectures and discussions held during the Workshops.
