Environmental Challenges and Responses
The Advisory Board of the Office of Interdisciplinary Studies invites faculty members to explore curricular development and possible EKI faculty appointments that support topics related to "Environmental Challenges and Responses." The Advisory Board expects that expanding our offerings in topics related to this area will entail a combination of existing faculty members offering new courses and the appointment of new faculty members bringing pertinent expertise and/or freeing up existing faculty members to develop and teach these courses. Topics related to the broad area of "Environmental Challenges and Responses" include:
- Cultural and artistic responses
- Environmental policy
- Public health
- Resource distribution and consumption
- Sustainability and sustainability science
In addition to the topics listed above, proposals for other related topics are welcome.
Interest in this topic is considerable, and at the Nov. 8th Common Grounds Lunch, participants asked for a virtual location where they could share their ideas and interests related to this area.
Interested faculty, students, and staff members are welcome to join our pweb site, where you can identify your interests, share materials (properly copyrighted, of course!) and form groups for developing courses, identifying issues of interest to the campus community, and explore the possibility of EKI faculty positions. This site is open to the campus community, and monitored by the Office of Interdisciplinary Studies.
