Issues of sustainability are so important to the human race at this time in history. It is the critical issue of our age. It is our charge to redefine our relationship with our planet and with each other by finding a better paradigm for meaning and happiness in our lives. It is an exciting challenge that calls us to be more than we are.
As chief academic officer for the college I believe it is important for me to take part and provide support for CMC’s new Bachelors of Arts in Sustainability. As an environmental economist with experience in sustainable development in lesser developed countries, I feel it is important to contribute my experience and knowledge to the classroom.
