EAP Monthly Dispatch
June 21st, 2015
Dear Alumni, Students, and Friends,
On behalf of the EAP faculty, I would like to welcome you to the first edition of our program's new monthly update: the EAP dispatch! We hope these dispatches, in addition to our biannual alumni newsletters, will help build an ongoing dialog between the EAP program, students, alumni, and friends.
There's lots happening in the EAP community this summer! Our program chair, Professor Greg Nemet, will spend the 2015-2016 academic year working with two energy research groups in Berlin, Germany. Greg will be working with the Department of Climate Policy at the German Institute for Economic Research on analysis of policies supporting the Energy Transition in Germany. He also plans to study incentives and commitment in climate policy with colleagues at the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change. In his absence, Professor Paul Wilson will take the reigns as interim chair. I'll also be starting my new role helping build our alumni engagement.
These dispatches are just one of our new engagement activities. We've also planned a special EAP breakfast as part of the itinerary for the 2015 Energy Summit, organized by the Wisconsin Energy Institute. The breakfast presents an excellent opportunity to network with fellow EAPers and let us know how the EAP program has impacted you beyond the classroom. We hope to see you there!
If you ever have any ideas for improving the EAP program, or if you would like to share your EAP experience with others, please feel free to reach out to us. We would love to hear from you.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend. Enjoy the summer solstice!
Professor Tracey Holloway
