Gregory Characklis, PhD, professor of environmental sciences and engineering at UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health and director of the UNC Institute for the Environment's Center for Watershed Science and Management, has been elected to the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP) board of directors for a three-year term beginning in October.
"It's quite an honor for Greg to have been elected to the board of AEESP, which represents most environmental engineering and science programs in the U.S.," said Michael Aitken, PhD, professor and chair of environmental sciences and engineering and former AEESP president. "To have been elected speaks to Greg's strong leadership skills, his visibility among colleagues and the new ways of thinking he is bringing to the field."
Founded in 1963 as a private nonprofit organization, AAESP has grown to more than 700 members, making it the largest professional organization in the discipline. AEESP members are professors in academic programs throughout the world who provide education in the sciences and technologies of environmental protection.
