Humphrey School Teams Up with Acara Program

reprinted from Humphrey Herald            

The Humphrey School has a new partnership with the Institute on the Environment's Acara program, which helps students develop innovative solutions to the world’s biggest challenges. The partnership will allow Acara to offer interdisciplinary courses and co-curricular programming to graduate students who want training and coaching to launch their initiatives.

As part of the partnership, Acara’s associate director and Humphrey School affiliate faculty member Megan Voorhees is working out of the Humphrey School. You can find Megan in the dean’s suite, or contact her at

Working at the crossroads of experiential education, community engagement and social impact for more than 25 years, she has directed a variety of leadership development and education programs in the youth development and higher education sectors. Previous work experience has included serving as the Director of the Public Service Center at the University of California, Berkeley; Program Manager and Trainer for the San Francisco Conservation Corps; and leading a study abroad program in Zimbabwe for Lewis and Clark College.
