Presidio Graduate School is home to an extensive and growing community of student clubs. Student clubs are an extension of the students’ learning experience and expression of their diverse professional interests and personal passions. Clubs are typically formed in response to students’ interests in specific areas like cleantech, green building, sustainable food, impact investment and social justice. Club-organized events, trips and projects are planned throughout the semester and provide students with an opportunity to dive deeper into areas they’re most excited about. Club members benefit from expanding their professional networks, gaining unique professional experience and working collaboratively with other students.
