As a student at Middlebury, Minna ’07 realized that she was deeply motivated by the need to support people as they navigate their roles in addressing climate change. She’s grateful for the opportunity to be back as a resource for the current cohort of students and the College. Over the last decade, she has led the design and implementation of new programs for various organizations, all focused on collaboration and impact. As the Director of Academic Affairs at the Yale School of the Environment, she worked with faculty, staff, students, and alumni to map out, plan, implement, and communicate a curriculum overhaul largely focused on the expansion of the school’s climate, energy, and environmental justice offerings. She also led the school’s professional development and online education initiatives. Her position grew out of her work as the school’s Case Study Integration Manager, through which she built interdisciplinary, applied case studies to be used across courses. Before her time at Yale, she developed comprehensive client engagement and marketing strategies and managed national nonprofit outreach plans for a climate change advocacy organization. She holds a B.A. in Sociology and Anthropology from Middlebury and a Master of Environmental Management (M.E.M.) from the Yale School of the Environment.
