Alumni Spotlight: Herb Sachs

How a U-M graduate education shaped the career for an environmentalist ahead of his time.

Time in Alaska can change a person. That happened for Herb Sachs when, after his undergraduate experience, he spent time there while serving the army. Always prone to spending time outdoors, Herb never considered anything in that realm as a potential vocation. It turns out, that was exactly what he was meant to do - and he did so over the course of a groundbreaking career that shaped environmental policy for the State of Maryland.
