MCC Resource Manager Partners Present Weekly at UH Hilo Graduate Seminar

Natural and cultural resource managers from across Hawaiʻi Island offer perspectives and advice to graduate students soon entering into a wide range of research and management fields. Manager Climate Corps staff facilitate these weekly interactive experiences through the Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science graduate program at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo.

Each week a local manager outlines their current professional duties, describes their involvement with applied research, and offers insights and advice to students from the broader picture of their careers. A significant portion of each class is dedicated to open discussion between managers and graduate students, as well as outside faculty, undergraduate/graduate students, and community members who also attend.

The seminars offer a unique informal environment in which graduate students can interact directly with managers to gain key insights into maximizing the impact of their graduate projects, while looking ahead to inquire about the skills, trainings, and experiences that will be important in achieving their long-term professional goals.
