Student and Alumni Information

We have designed the EAP program to help connect students and alums connect with each other, and stay connected even after they have left the UW. We support professional networking, newsletters, and events, and we are working to expand these connections.

Mark your calendar for the 2015 Energy Summit on October 13, and EAP Breakfast Discussion on October 14. More details to come!

Connecting Students

Whether you are already enrolled in the EAP program, or a UW graduate student interested in joining our community, you can get involved in EAP by participating in a social event. EAP students come from multiple home departments spread across the UW-campus. Building an academic and social cohort is important for linking students and faculty. The EAP student representatives organize 3-4 activities each semester, including lectures, viewing and discussing energy-related films, and debates on energy issues.

Students, faculty, and staff announce activities using the EAP list-serve, which is open to students, faculty, and alums with energy interests, as well as UW-Madison partners in the energy field.

See what events are planned on the EAP Social Events calendar.

Additional information can also be found in the Academic Policies and Procedures Handbook.

Alumni Engagement

If you are an alum looking to engage with EAP, we have plenty of opportunities. Whether offering internships or advice, you are a valuable resource for our students and programs.

Prof. Tracey Holloway is happy to talk about opportunities for you or your company to connect with EAP, and Ann Swenson (608-262-9864) in the Nelson Institute can answer questions about investing in EAP to grow the program.

We hope you are also able to join us for events, from informal get-togethers on the Union Terrace, to the 2015 Energy Summit on October 13th - we would love to see you back in Madison!

Jobs and Networks

If you are on the job market, an employer, or just have opportunities to share, we have a range of resources to help.

Job positions are regularly posted on the "Energy Analysis" list-serve.

The Nelson Institute Jobs Board hosts and posts public job opportunities, and is free to both employers and subscribers.

EAP Alumni have set up the EAP LinkedIn Group, and both students and alumni are invited to join!

Often, our students have questions, and alumni have answers. We have developed an Alumni Database to help facilitate connections, and our faculty members are also happy to introduce students and alumni to each other.

Finally, if you are working in environmental fields, you might also be interested in subscribing or posting to the Earth Science Jobs Network (ES_Jobs_Net) co-founded by EAP faculty member Prof. Tracey Holloway, and hosted by the National Center for Atmospheric Research. ES_Jobs_Net is free to join or post to, includes about 50 jobs/month, and reaches nearly 5000 job seekers worldwide.
