Our Mission

Founded in 2015, Epsilon Eta is a professional fraternity at the University of Michigan for those seeking post-grad positions in the environmental field. We are the first of our kind at this university, and the third in the nation. We seek to develop a more robust network of students, researchers, employers, and agencies to more effectively deal with the realities of our world’s changing climate and loss of biodiversity. By fostering a conscious awareness of the intrinsic relationship between people and their environment through academics, the community, and service, we seek to bridge the gap from the undergraduate atmosphere to professional environmental fields for students at Michigan.

We are overseen by faculty advisor Prof. Ben van der Pluijm of the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences.

Although we are inclusive of all majors, we require an interest in the environmental field.

By pledging Epsilon Eta, you will become a member of an electric group of driven, intelligent, and innovative peers, as well as gain access to professional, social, and volunteering resources.
