Teaching Philosophy

My goal is to provide the students with the tools necessary for them to understand what an Environmental Impact Statement represents, what it is for, how it is generated, and how to impartially critique an Environmental Impact Statement. As such, being able to take what is presented in class and apply it is more important than taking what is presented and repeating it back word for word.


As I do not have an office on campus, my office hours are whenever a student needs to talk to me. My contact information is available on the course Web page.
