The William D. Ruckelshaus Center

Faculty, Staff and Practitioners

The Center maintains a small staff to ensure efficient stewardship of resources while providing quick response to requests for assistance. In every project, the Center accesses the expertise of faculty, staff and students at both Universities. These university assets can be augmented by outside practitioners. This means the Center is able to call upon renowned subject matter experts in tailoring a specific response to each project. The Center also provides graduate internship opportunities to help build the next generation of leaders.
