Community Engaged Learning
The Environmental Humanities Program prioritizes community and justice in our curriculum.
Specific Curriculum Updates Include:
- Recasting the program’s one credit Leadership seminar towards environmental justice solutions.
- Creating a three-credit seminar taught each spring (starting Spring '22) that focuses on environmental justice issues and community-engaged research methodologies.
- Hosting a workshop each semester on engagement, inclusion, and justice, taught by our Community Engagement Coordinator.
The Environmental Humanities Graduate Program attracts passionate students eager to bridge gaps between the classroom and larger community. Our students develop reciprocal projects with community partners to further environmental justice.
