Ross Alumni, Professor Featured in New Documentary
Six U-M alumni, including three from Michigan Ross, play a role in the documentary “Saving Grace, Saving Place,” which centers on the Holy Cross Abbey, a Cistercian monastery in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley (also known as Trappists).
Former Erb Institute fellows Kathryn Buckner MBA/MS ’11; Charlotte Coultrap-Bagg, MBA/MS ’11; and Alexander Linkow, MBA/MS ’11, worked with Professor Andy Hoffman and School of Natural Resources and Environment colleagues Jessica Neafsey, Craig Cammarata, and Christopher Stratman on an environmental report with specific recommendations and ideas for sustainable business ventures.
That report — their master’s project — is the blueprint for Holy Cross’ ongoing sustainability efforts. As the documentary shows, the monks have adopted many of the recommendations and continue to work on more.
“Saving Grace, Saving Place” was created by Deidra D. Dain and George F. Patterson and aired on WVPT in Virginia.
