Jules Keniry of the National Wildlife Federation took notes and wrote them up in this guest post:
“If student leaders would focus on securing commitments to invest 3% or more of the campus endowment in solar and other clean energy strategies,” for example, says Shah, “that would create wealth, build the clean economy, and help students gain career experience and good jobs in this growing arena.”
Moreover, students and faculty need to prepare students across disciplines, Shah advocates, as employers are increasingly hiring graduates from diverse fields. “The solar field is no longer largely limited to engineering graduates,” for instance, “as it was when I started in the mid 1990’s,” says Shah.
“Today students from all courses of study, from English to marketing to business and communications are needed in solar and related fields.”
