Stroud Water Research Center congratulates and says farewell to Mandy Nix, our all-star watershed education specialist of the last four years, as she begins the next chapter of her career at the University of Vermont and the Gund Institute for Environment. Nix joins the university’s Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources as a Ph.D. student and Gund Graduate Fellow. With research advisors in both the Rubenstein School and the College of Education and Social Services, her social-ecological scholarship will be at the nexus of environmental education, literacy, and justice.
Education Director Steve Kerlin, Ph.D., said, “We are proud of Mandy raising our awareness of environmental justice issues and identifying strategies for reaching diverse audiences. During her tenure at the Stroud Center, she helped to expand our audiences in equitable ways. We will miss her contagious excitement for creating meaningful education programs.”
