Student Environmental Communication Network (SECN)
The Student Environmental Communication Network (SECN) trains students of diverse creative and technical talents to produce digital media stories based on their explorations of sustainability. Academic year and summer program coordinators and interns work on solo and team projects to help tell the story of sustainability on campus and how it relates to global sustainability problem-solving. SECN productions embody the character of their student producers who often bring musical, illustration, humor, storytelling, and other creative talents to the endeavor.
