Dear IES Graduates,

Congratulations on completing your bachelor’s degrees! I wish we could celebrate with you and your families in person.

Still, I am confident that your resilience will serve you as you embark on your life’s work to help protect our Earth and her people. Good luck to each and every one of you, and please stay in touch with us.

Yours in solidarity,

Nancy C. Tuchman, PhD
