Bri Stevens

What is your major? Landscape architecture

Expected graduation: 2023

What inspired your interest in the environment and/or community? In high school I volunteered as an assistant coach for Special Olympics swimming and really enjoyed the experience working with and being welcomed into the community. This was something I felt was missing from my first few years of my undergrad at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. CESP is a great organization that has created their own community within the program while also practicing community engagement off campus. Environmental science has been a growing passion of mine as I learn more about the importance of sustainability and environmental justice when designing spaces, especially with the growing threats climate change presents.
