Emerging Conservation Professionals (ECPs) of all levels are facing unexpected challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the situation continues to change, the American Institute for Conservation (AIC)'s Emerging Conservation Professionals Network (ECPN) Professional Education and Training (PET) Officers have worked to compile a three-part series focused on responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. The aim is to provide resources that may help answer some questions currently being raised by ECPs.
For Part I of the ECPN COVID-19 Response series, PET reached out to the directors of each school in the Association for North American Graduate Programs in the Conservation of Cultural Property (ANAGPIC). Their responses, summarized on a dedicated ECPN web page, highlight recent changes to each program’s admissions process or coursework as a response to the challenges COVID-19 has created for pre-program and current students. ANAGPIC members’ COVID-19 response is constantly evolving. Visit the ECPN COVID-19 Response page here.
