“My Environmental Regulatory Bootcamp presentations pull back the curtain on EPA’s environmental regulatory programs and provide insights into EPA’s enforcement priorities and regulatory goals to empower students and broaden their perspectives. My presentations are always about providing the student with the tools to identify and solve regulatory challenges themselves whenever possible.”
Joe Santarella
