2013 Baird Fellow
Emily Eckardt, Women's and Gender Studies Major & Political Science Minor
Emily Eckardt is a senior Women's and Gender Studies major with Political Science minor. Emily has spent her time at Dickinson volunteering at local non-profits, studying abroad in India and Germany, and studying gender equality and multiculturalism. This year, Emily facilitated support groups for individuals transitioning out of homelessness. These experiences have taught her that many individuals must work harder than others to sustain their livelihoods and that environmental sustainability cannot be successful when separated from social and cultural awareness. Emily is most excited to collaborate with a bright group of Dickinsonians who all bring different experiences with and perspectives on sustainability.
