Environmental studies majors chosen as Eisenhower Institute Fellows

Three environmental studies majors, Gwen Brown ’11, Sara Cawley ’11 and David Curtis ’12, were recently chosen as Eisenhower Institute Fellows.  Fellows serve on the EI’s College Advisory Council, act as liaisons for assigned Institute events at both locations, and serve as hosts for campus visitors. Students engage fully in the planning and promotion of specific programs and projects. They are responsible for selecting, developing, and promoting a public policy theme with programming in both Washington and in Gettysburg.

Brown is an environmental studies and political science double major. On campus, Brown is involved in the Environmental Concerns Organization and the Law and Justice Society. She studied abroad in Cairns, Australia and spent two months in Nicaragua with the Heston Summer Experience, an internship for sustainable development work.

Cawley is an environmental studies and political science double major. On campus, Cawley is social vice-president of service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega and director of public affairs for the International Affairs Association. Cawley recently received a Mellon Foundation undergraduate grant, allowing her to research collaborative land use management in the Intermountain West.

Curtis is an environmental studies major with minors in economics and biology. He has interned with the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management studying marine fisheries, and studied tick population and activity at the University of Rhode Island.
