ANGLES Network Map
What is this?
This database displays programs dedicated to leadership training for graduate students in sustainability in the United States and Canada. It provides in-depth programmatic details on how they operate and what they teach.
Why was it created?
We created this database to make program information and people more accessible and easier to find. We aim to harness this institutional knowledge in order to increase both the quantity and quality of this type of training.
How do I use it?
This database is geared toward both established and aspirational programs to foster connections between all working in this space and lower the bar for entry. The database is broken into two parts: a network map (below) with programmatic and design components of each program, and a curricular database that models how each program teaches key aptitudes in leadership training for graduate students in sustainability.
Is it OK to contact these programs with questions?
Yes! ANGLES institutions are dedicated to fostering one another’s success. We believe that there is no cap on the number of sustainability leaders needed, and no cap on the number of programs that should succeed in pursuit of a better world.
Who is invited?
This is an evolving database. We invite any program working on leadership training for graduate students in sustainability to participate. Contact Aleta Weller to learn more about the ANGLES network and to add your program to the database.
