The main objective of the Environmental Science Graduate Student Association (ENSCI SU) is to encourage scientific interaction between graduate students and faculty in the Environmental Science Program in an effort to increase interdepartmental communication and provide a forum for the exchange of scientific information. In addition to promoting the scientific interaction between graduate students and faculty, the organization also seeks to promote social interaction between students and faculty. Although these are the two main purposes for developing an Environmental Science Graduate Student Organization, there are many other purposes upon which the organization may be formed. Another major goal of ENSCI SU to act as a medium of information from the faculty and administration levels of the Environment Science Program department at Iowa State University to the graduate students and vice versa. The ENSCI SU will also participate in programs through sponsorship, volunteering and/or funding events that the Executive Committee feel are related to the benefit of ENSCI SU members.
