Alumni Leadership Cohort

Alumni Leadership Cohorts are an opportunity to connect with fellow alumni from across all DDCSP programs to envision the future of the Alumni Network. 

The Alumni Leadership Cohorts (ALC) are geared towards building relationships with DDCSP alumni across programs and cohort years. Over the course of six months you will bring to life the vision and structures for the Alumni Network through projects that engage fellow alumni.

On April 4th - 7th 2019, DDCSP alumni from each university gathered to build cross-sector community on Bainbridge Island, in Seattle, WA.  Over the course of the four days we co-created an experience that embodied your collective vision for an inclusive conservation movement.

ELP Mentorship

Looking for an opportunity to discuss professional goals, challenges, and questions with peers and a mentor in the environmental sector? Join a 6-month mentorship program between Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Alumni and the Senior Fellows from the Environmental Leadership Program. Mentors and mentees will meet virtually in small learning circles called pods, comprised of 4 DDCSP alumni who are matched with a mid - senior level career environmental leader. This structure will provide both vertical and horizontal mentoring opportunities, allowing each participant to learn from each other and to offer their expertise and knowledge.
