Earth & Environment Welcomes New Academic Coordinator Melissa Betrone

The Department of Earth & Environment is delighted to welcome our new academic department coordinator, Melissa Betrone. Melissa is a skilled, higher-education professional with a background in sustainable and organic agriculture.

Melissa comes to us from the Center of Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems at UC Santa Cruz in California, where her work involved outreach, recruitment and programming. Among other experiences, Melissa ran her own flower farm in Dolores, Colorado, and was an instructor at the Keewaydin Environmental Education Center in Salisbury, Vermont.

Melissa has a BA degree in development studies from Brown University, where she also was an exchange student in Tanzania. Recently, she earned a certificate of diversity and inclusion from UC Santa Cruz.

Melissa is a great fit with the E&E Department. Her expertise in sustainable agriculture as well as diversity and inclusion will enhance and enrich our department in many ways.
