Environmental protection, energy efficiency, climate change vulnerability assessment, climate change adaptation and resiliency planning, sustainable transportation, sustainable travel, community sustainability planning, public health protection, high-performance and green building, and renewable energy deployment are some of the many ‘social good’ issues addressed by The Cadmus Group in support of its clients. Ian Kline will talk about his strategic vision to grow a firm focused on advancing social good through consulting, and what it takes to build a career in consulting while also realizing a passion for and commitment to creating social value, improving the quality of people’s lives, and protecting the environment.

When & Where
Environmental Studies Program at Tufts University
Founded in 1984, The Environmental Studies Program (ENVS) was one of the first multidisciplinary environmental programs in the United States. Our students and alumni have become effective practitioners and advocates for the environment in medicine, law, finance, industry, government, and other academic fields.
Environmental Studies is offered as a dual major in conjunction with any departmental major in the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering—normally excluding interdisciplinary programs. This dual-major program combines the depth of a major in a specific field with a wide breadth of environmentally oriented courses.
In addition to our academic program, we offer weekly "Lunch and Learn" lectures that are open to the public, a yearly major lectureship on an environmental topic, and periodicly other events.
