At its core, SNRE is a community:

a community of scholars

of colleagues

and of friends.

We come from many disciplines, spanning academic programs from undergraduate to doctoral, representing dozens of nations and united in the good fight for achieving sustainability for our planet.

In 2012, we welcomed noted Environmental Justice activist Peggy Shepard and author-educator Bill McKibben.  And we celebrated the career of legendary colleague, Bunyan Bryant.

Sustainability remained our core focus, as SNRE students created campus farms and faculty worked to create sustainable communities and address regional sustainability challenges facing the Great Lakes.

We sent into the world the next generation of problem-solvers ”¦ and welcomed a new generation and offered them guidance on diving into the riches of SNRE.

In doing so, we kept our rich traditions alive, connecting the past ”¦ with the future.

We remained a place where something fishy is always going on ”¦

where new technologies charge us up ”¦

where our work ”¦ is also our play ”¦

and where a helping hand is always offered to a fellow Wolverine.

At SNRE, we continue to ”¦.

share meals ”¦

wear plaid ”¦

and race in our waders.

And we carry our resolute mission from year to year: to change the world.

Now, that is a mission worth celebrating every day.

To all the members of the SNRE community, Season’s Greetings, ”¦ and may 2013 bring a more just and sustainable world.

Live Green and Go Blue!
