My focus as a sustainability educator is on involving students and my community in transformative, sustainability-oriented learning and doing. The process involves defining and taking desired action that can authentically reconnect people with each other and the land. Students in my courses engage in transdisciplinary integration of the academic disciplines aimed at healing the divide between humans and nature that characterizes the modern worldview. I believe that fostering sustainable living is the most pressing challenge and opportunity of our time, and I find my work with students who share my interest and drive for a more equitable and healthy world to be exciting, creative, and fulfilling.
Research interests: globalized political economy and its alternatives, decentralized economic and governance structures, industrialized culture and worldviews and their alternatives, sustainability education, transdisciplinarity in higher education, service learning, sustainable leadership.
