On Thursday, January 29, UNM-G Executive Director Dr. Christopher Dyer was installed as the first president of the Community College Affiliate Program (CCAP) of the National Council for Science and the Environment. Centered in Washington, D.C., the CCAP promotes sustainability education and environmental science programs at institutions, such as UNM-Gallup, that grant Associate degrees.
CCAP also supports student research, engagement and leadership opportunities and partnerships with other community colleges, four year institutions of higher education and federal agencies. Under Dr. Dyer’s leadership CCAP will continue to advance the quality of interdisciplinary environmental and sustainability education and encourage the participation of administrators, faculty and staff in sustainability efforts. Participating CCAP members promote careers in environmentally healthy and sustainable communities by providing diverse student populations with the knowledge and skills necessary.
Congratulations to Dr. Dyer for achieving this great honor!
