The Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program offers a unique learning opportunity for mid-career environmental professionals and decision-makers to gain expertise, enhance skills and broaden perspectives on environmental and natural resource management and leadership. Established in August 2000 with seed funding from UC Berkeley alumni Carolyn and Richard Beahrs, the ELP offers an annual 3-week summer certificate course in Sustainable Environmental Management at UC Berkeley, and coordinates an active and growing Alumni Network. The ELP also supports post-training collaborative projects with alumni through its Small Grants Initiative.
