We Were Made for These Times
By Clarissa Pinkola Estes, American poet, post-trauma specialist and Jungian psychoanalyst, author of Women Who Run With the Wolves.

My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times. I have heard from so many recently who are deeply and properly bewildered. They are concerned about the state of affairs in our world now. Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment and often righteous rage over the latest degradations of what matters most to civilized, visionary people.

Words from our Alumni

After finishing the Environmental Studies program, I moved to Portland, Oregon to intern at Metro, a regional government and metropolitan planning organization. I am working on the GIS and cartographic applications of the Regional Transportation Plan, one which focuses on improving aspects of safety, reliability and accessibility of transportation in the Portland Metropolitan region. One of my passions is using cartography to work towards a healthy and just world, and by having Metro focus on providing equal access to safe and sustainable transportation utilizes and excites my passion. The Environmental Studies program provided me with the knowledge on aspects of environmental inequality and the passion to continue working towards a world I would like to see.

Paige Williams, 2016

Everyday I really am thinking about my impact on the environment and the people. ... The passion and energy [ENST faculty] put into my education was not wasted a bit. I absorbed every drop and will be passing it along. ... I don't know what I will be doing in the distant future, but I will be doing it for the planet and the people before I will ever do it for mine or someone else's selfishness.
