On Tuesday, June 5, 2018, the Sustainability Science and Society (SSAS) graduate program celebrated the graduation of six students.

The Environmental Sustainability Research Centre (ESRC) would like to extend congratulations to our newest Master of Sustainability graduates. The 2018 graduating class included: Meghan Birbeck, Caitlin Garner, Ashton Govan, Nicholas Fischer, Gala Muñoz-Carrier, and Tyler Prince.

The ESRC would also like to congratulate Nicholas Fischer, who was named the 2018 recipient of the Distinguished Graduate Student Award – Sustainability Science and Society for achieving the highest overall average in the program.

“This diverse group of graduate students is particularly special to me since they were admitted into our program while I was Graduate Program Director of SSAS. I have had a unique opportunity to work with them in a variety of contexts along their journey towards graduation. It was an honour to witness the conferring of their degree of Master of Sustainability earlier this week. Their hard work has had impact on scholarship, the environment, and on different communities in Canada, including the Niagara Region. This is an important milestone in their lives and I am extremely proud of them,” says Dr. Marilyne Jollineau Graduate Program Director of SSAS.

“I am confident that these individuals will continue to make a positive impact on society and the environment as they pursue their future goals. We wish them all great success in their future endeavours!”
