Hailey Jorgensen: Climate Change Studies Program Assistant:


Hailey Jorgensen is a senior at the University of Montana majoring in Environmental Studies with a minor in Climate Change Studies. Hailey grew up in Seattle, WA and spent most of her life exploring the Pacific Northwest before moving to Missoula to attend UM. Her interest in environmental studies was sparked by climate change discussions in high school, which drove her to enroll in the EVST program at UM. Hailey was thrilled when the University decided to offer a Climate Change minor and has taken the opportunity to better understand the issues in order to develop a career in climate change mitigation efforts.
