MEM/PSM Project Overview
The culminating experience of students seeking a Master of Environmental Management (MEM) or Professional Science Master (PSM) is completion of a project. This element of the curriculum serves to integrate coursework, further develop skills required to function effectively in a professional setting (e.g. communication, presentation and project management) and provide an opportunity to participate in the solution of a real environmental problem.  Working with local agencies or/and organizations and an Environmental Science and Management (ESM) faculty adviser, the student identifies a problem, formulates a project with the community partner, formally proposes a project, completes the scope of work detailed in the proposal, and documents and presents the results of the project to an appropriate audience.

Project Database
The ESM Department has developed this site to facilitate the matching the MEM or PSM graduate students with community partner projects.  This database is searchable for students in the MEM and PSM programs, Faculty Supervisors and Community Partners.
