Catalog Description : The heart of this course is an annual symposium organized around a well-defined topic with both scientific and policy components — e.g., nuclear waste disposal, global warming. Each year, two or three nationally recognized experts on the selected topic are brought to campus. In the weeks before a visit by one of the major speakers, students, together with environmental studies faculty, read and discuss papers suggested by the speaker. The speakers meet with students in the seminar following their public lecture, providing students with an opportunity to interact directly with scientists and policy makers at the forefront of environmental issues.

Topic for Fall 2017: Bicycling and Sustainable Cities--Health, Environment and Policy
Examination of bicycle infrastructure, attitudes, and use in urban environments. We will study cycling’s role in transportation, recreation, environmental quality, and public health via case studies from around the world, but with a particular focus on the Fox Cities Region and the state of Wisconsin. Learning will progress through field trips, guest speakers, readings, and frequent class discussions. Students will complete community-based learning projects in groups, in addition to short writing assignments.



Topic for Winter 2018: Sick Cities
This course will explore some of the environmental challenges of densely populated urban areas, particularly the contamination of soil, air, and water systems. We will investigate how those systems came to be polluted, what the impacts are of that contamination, and ways that they might be remediated. We will be discussing the environmental chemistry, human and environmental health, and environmental justice issues relating to environmental problems facing cities all over the world.
