Please be advised of a toner scam that is targeting various individuals and departments on campus.

Such scams may involve receiving a phone call asking for your copier's model and serial number and/or telling you that your toner is low.

Toner is included in the maintenance contracts for all fleet copiers managed by Print Production.  Order toner by calling the toll free number listed on the copier and providing the serial number.  Never pay for or order toner from an outside supplier.

Contact me with questions at 4-5701.

On April 12, ten ENVS students attended graduate classes during professional team presentations and met individually with policy team members, other graduate students, professors, and the director of the program. Thanks to the efforts of Rebecca Brenner, formerly of Ithaca College, now teaching at Cornell, this visit is the start of an informal pathway for ENVS students to explore and gain insight into careers in environmental policy.

Several ENVS students competed in the 2017 Policy Case Competition coordinated by the Politics Society at NYU. First developed in 2014, the Policy Case Competition is a three-round, highly competitive exercise where students are given the opportunity to learn and refine their policy-making and presentation skills. 

Zach Jacobsen, an environmental studies senior took the initiative to create a competition team including ENVS seniors Zoe Workstel, Chase Lurgio, and Zack Luckin. Together they developed and submitted a written policy memo outlining their key issues and propositions on an element of environmental policy. Although they did not continue to the final rounds, we applaud their passion and initiative in going beyond their program to compete in policy with peers from all around the nation.
