This Working Group facilitates networking between students and experienced TWS members by hosting meetings, workshops, webinars, and a student chapter leader’s breakfast. The working group also selects the recipient of The Wildlife Society’s Student Chapter Advisor of the Year Award, provides recommendations to TWS Council, and hosts an online Discord Community for SDWG members.
