Teaching and Learning Partners

You’ll learn the writing and reasoning skills that are the hallmark of a quality liberal arts education. You will also benefit from dedicated, collegial, and empathetic professionals who value students as partners in purposeful teaching and learning. We enjoy a culture of participation that encourages a high degree of involvement and responsibility, in order to create a supportive and exploratory learning community.

A Natural Laboratory

Our emphasis on the intersection of science and society will help you learn to deliver experiential programs that foster environmental literacy and encourage people to protect and improve the environment. By using the natural world as a laboratory, you will learn the educational value and purpose of place, and learn to recognize the intellectual, physical, emotional, and social conditions that facilitate environmental awareness.
