"UEP seeks to "educate those who will contribute to solving key public problems by making institutions more responsive to the social and economic needs of communities and by moving toward the sustainable management of environmental resources." This goal conveys to me continuous active learning within and outside the classroom, professors who practice student led teaching methods, and available resources that would positively develop my skills so that I may become a prominent and effective practical visionary. Thus, the UEP program has provided me with the deeper knowledge and skills to make my dream as a youth advocate a reality."
