Register for an evening with photographer James Balog
Thursday, April 25
Reception – 7-8 PM
First Floor Devlin
Film Screening and Q&A – 8 PM
In the spring of 2005, James Balog (’74), recipient of the 2005 Arts Council Alumni Award, launched The Extreme Ice Survey. This project used revolutionary time-lapse cameras to document changes in the glacial landscape of the Arctic. The survey resulted in spectacular footage that became the documentary Chasing Ice, winner of Sundance’s Excellence in Cinematography Award for U.S. Documentary Filmmaking.
The documentary is directed by Jeff Orlowski, a cinematographer and award-winning filmmaker who has worked with Balog since 2007. The Extreme Ice Survey project was a collaboration between scientists and artists, including videographers, photographers, and a team of extreme-weather expedition specialists.
Sponsored by Institute of Liberal Arts, BC Energy and Environment Alumni Network, the Environmental Studies Program, the Earth and Environmental Sciences Department, EcoPledge, and the Arts Council. Event is free, but registration is required.
Our students come from a variety of academic disciplines, and they bring to Bard a passion about their future role as environmental and business leaders. Interdisciplinary course work, faculty-student mentorships, and professional hands-on experiences provide the platform students need to succeed academically and professionally. Both Bard CEP and Bard MBA offer competitive merit fellowships, project assistantships, and campus employment opportunities for qualified candidates.
Thank you in advance for your help spreading the word to Bard College students interested in graduate school!

Bard Graduate Programs in Sustainabilitywww.bard.edu/gps
The Bard MBA in Sustainability focuses on the business case for sustainability. We train students to see how firms can integrate economic, environmental, and social objectives, the triple bottom line, to create successful businesses that build a more sustainable world. Graduates of the Bard MBA Program will transform existing companies, start their own businesses, and pioneer new ways of operating that meet human needs, while protecting and restoring the earth’s natural systems. The Bard MBA is a low-residency program structured around “weekend intensives” with regular online instruction between these residencies. Five of these intensives are held each term: four in the heart of New York City and one in the Hudson Valley. Residencies take place over four days, beginning Friday morning, and ending Monday afternoon.

The Bard Center for Environmental Policy believes that to solve environmental challenges and achieve sustainability in our institutions and in society, government and business policies must be grounded in the best available science. Bard CEP’s cohort-based program and intensive, campus-based, first-year curriculum require students to synthesize information from a range of disciplines and sources. The emphasis on science-based policy enables students to progress from knowledge of the issues to the formulation of feasible, effective policy responses. Distinctive program features include a modular approach to course work; close student-faculty interaction; professional internships; practical training in geographic information systems (GIS), statistics, leadership, and communication strategies; and research opportunities created to fit student interests.
