20th Anniversary of CES

A Resilient 20 Years at CES 

The 2019-2020 Academic Year marks the Center for Environment & Society’s 20th Anniversary of being a Center at Washington College.  

The Center for Environment & Society at Washington College was created in 1999 to promote interdisciplinary learning, research and exemplary stewardship of natural and cultural resources. Its primary objective is to support the integration of ecological and social values. Over the last twenty years, we have worked to not only remain resilient as an organization within Washington College, but to foster an environment of resilience for WC students and aim to prepare them to be a generation of resilient leaders.  

Come out and celebrate with us throughout the year at one of our many “CES at 20” events. Check out our calendar and the events sections below for a list of our upcoming events.
