As F&ES students returned from spring break to online courses, the community has found creative ways to continue engaging with industry thought leaders! This past Friday, the Business & Environment Learning Community hosted “Financing Sustainability: The Citi Bank Way”. This Zoom session was led by Bruce Schlein who is the Director of the Citi Impact Fund and F&ES alumn Eliza H. Eubank the Global Head of Environmental and Social Risk Management. They spoke with students about their experience working at the largest global bank on sustainable finance.

While some students might think spring break is for late mornings and relaxation, some opportunities are too good to pass up when they present themselves, even with an early morning start. Prescribed burns are weather-dependent and can be difficult for students to attend during the normal academic calendar. So, after a short, early morning drive to the Yale Myers Forest, our team of student volunteers strapped water tanks to our backs and completed a thorough safety briefing. Under the direction of trained professionals, we then slowly ignited a meadow, contributing to its nutrient cycling and habitat diversity while selectively managing for Oak and Hickory regeneration.
