Graduate Certificate in One Health

New Graduate Certificate in One Health

Inline image 4

What is One Health?

The growing recognition of the links between human health, animal health, and the environment requires new tools for cooperation and collaboration between professionals working in these sectors. Such transdisciplinary “One Health” approaches demand further development of a common body of knowledge and a common scientific and clinical vocabulary for understanding and controlling diseases affecting both human beings and animals, that often are related to shared environmental exposures.

The Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences is offering a new Graduate Certificate in One Health to UW Graduate students in all disciplines.

The One Health curriculum emphasizes the linkages and integration between human, animal, and environmental health. Specific areas of emphasis include zoonotic diseases, the human animal bond, integrated approaches to human, animal, and environmental risk and outcome data, and human animal medicine (including clinical comparative medicine). The Graduate Certificate in One Health is intended to enhance the education of matriculated UW graduate students beyond their regular course of study.


Please see the website for details on the curriculum as well as application instructions:

DACA Support

As you know, Mayor Murray announced $150,000 in new city funds to support DACA recipients. We’re moving quickly and working with community partners to get the word out about free workshops throughout September to help eligible DACA recipients renew their status before the October 5 deadline announced by the Trump Administration. Can you help us get the word out? Please see the attached flyer we put together “5 Things You Need to Know”. The flyer is available in 10 languages. We also have an infograph for social media in English and Spanish.

List of workshops providing free legal assistance and information can be found here:

Also, we got confirmation last night that the Mexican consulate is offering to pay the $495 DACA renewal fee for Mexican nationals. This is huge because a super majority of DACA recipients are from Mexico.

Univision is giving us and the consulate air time next Wednesday to talk about the free workshops and the scholarship support.

Registration is Open For EPA’s Sixth Annual Campus RainWorks Challenge

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is launching its sixth annual Campus RainWorks Challenge, a design competition that is open to colleges and universities across the country. EPA seeks to engage with students to foster a dialogue about responsible stormwater management, and showcase the environmental, economic, and social benefits of green infrastructure practices.

Registration for the 2017 Challenge is open from September 1st through the 30th. Student teams must register in order to submit their entries by December 15th. Winners will be announced in the Spring of 2018. Each first-place team will earn a student prize of $2,000 to be divided evenly among student team members and a faculty prize of $3,000 to support green infrastructure research or training. Second-place teams will win $1,000 for student teams and a $2,000 faculty prize.

Water pollution associated with stormwater runoff requires infrastructure solutions that are innovative, resilient, and affordable. Today’s scholars are tomorrow’s design professionals. The Campus RainWorks Challenge will harness their creativity and knowledge to jointly advance the agency’s mission to protect public health and water quality.

Available completely online, and supplementing a wide range of vocations, the courses are ideal for recent graduate, working professionals, and those pursuing advanced degrees. Individuals can take just one course, or earn a Graduate Certificate upon completion of all three required courses in the program.

The Program offers three online courses:

•       Human Dimensions of Forest Carbon Management (FOR 833) – Spring, 2018

•       Forest Carbon Policy, Economics, and Finance (FOR 835) – Fall, 2017

•       Measurement and Monitoring of Forest Carbon (FOR 837) – Spring, 2017

The program is designed for participation from anywhere in the world, with a highly practical focus on the science, methodologies, and practices used in the field today.  Applicants from a broad range of professional and disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Participants must hold a Bachelor’s Degree.

A Forest Carbon specialization equips participants with the interdisciplinary tools to plan, implement, manage, and evaluate forestry-based climate change mitigation activities. Certification provides professionals a competitive edge when applying for opportunities in forest carbon project development, REDD+ policy, and carbon offset investment advising for corporations, governments, and non-governmental organizations.

Participants in the Certificate program learn scientific foundations of climate change and forest-climate interactions, how forest management effects forest carbon balance, the role of forests in carbon markets, social context of forest carbon sequestration, and tools for measuring, monitoring, and accounting for forest carbon – including satellite imagery, remote sensing, and integrated carbon sequestration models.

Participants also have access to MSU resources such as remote library materials, GIS training, and journal access. Additionally, all participants maintain access to the program alumni network, which tracks and distributes news on policies and methodologies, facilitates internal networking, and shares research and work opportunities.
