Jaime Phillips, Environmental Studies

Jaime Phillips 2016 Baird Sustainability Fellow

Jaime Phillips '16


Jaime Phillips is an Environmental Studies major focused on urban development. She came to Dickinson thinking she would study sciences, but after taking a political science class on cities, she knew that she wanted to learn more. After discovering her interest, Jaime studied in Copenhagen, Denmark, where she discovered her passion for sustainable transportation. She hopes to improve public transit, biking, and walking infrastructure in the U.S.

Since her freshman year, Jaime has worked with the Central PA Conservancy. She recently presented educational posters about the headwaters of the Letort Spring Run at the CPC’s fall fundraiser. This was a culmination of everything that she has learned about conservation, education, and graphic presentation from her classes and internships.

On campus, Jaime is involved with community service and serves as a First-Year Mentor and a Global Ambassador for study abroad in Denmark. Notably, she was awarded the Howard Land Rubendall Senior Scholarship for outstanding academics, leadership, and service and elected to Phi Beta Kappa at the beginning of this year. Her Dickinson experience has certainly been one of transformation and she is excited to work during the Baird Colloquium to articulate how her diverse experiences can help her improve cities and transportation in the future.
