  • Curious about other cultures and communities.
  • Mature and flexible—our learning and living environments are often unpredictable!

How Will You Impact the World?


fpo1

SFS was founded with the belief that stewardship of our planet requires a new generation of environmental leaders. Our founders believed that global conservation takes more than the scientific community ? that it hinges on the engagement of a diverse array of informed and committed individuals from many backgrounds.

Toward that goal, we seek to cultivate diverse student cohorts and create an inclusive environment, supporting every student from the time they apply to the time they return from the field and beyond.

We see our many differences as our collective strength. Therefore, to the best of our ability, it is our goal to support our students, faculty, and staff regardless of race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, age, religion or religious creed, ability, sex or gender, gender identity and/or expression, sexual orientation, military or veteran status, or genetic information.
