Student Spotlight


Joshua Doh


Arts & Science Class of 2022

Joshua Doh studies environmental sociology and business and was the president of the undergraduate organization SPEAR in 2021-2022. He is currently assisting on a research project with Professor Hess exploring how U.S cities can create policies at the intersection of social equity and energy transition goals.    For the project, Josh has been conducting individual case studies on Midwestern cities, where he is analyzing the cities’ sustainability plans.    He hopes to continue learning about the best policies in the space and possibly source ideas for the Vanderbilt Green Fund, a $150,000 annual fund that finances campus sustainability projects, which Josh will be leading starting Fall 2020.    Josh seeks to utilize his immersive educational experience at Vanderbilt University in order to pursue a career where he can invest in solutions for climate change and financial inclusivity, and one day be a leading voice in the policy discussion surrounding both issues.
