A component of the Environmental Studies curriculum will involve doing real work on real issues in our community. This will give students a "work locally, think globally" sensitivity to environmental issues. New and exciting projects arise each year on campus and in the broader community where students not only engage with particular environmental issues, but come to meet influential policy makers and prominent environmental thinkers.

critically important to teaching biology and ecology."
