How we live in the world is affected by how we think about the world and our place in it. How we think is reflected by the stories we tell, the observations we make, and the questions we ask. Our goal in this two-quarter program is to draw upon a wide array of stories from science and other perspectives in order to work towards living sustainably. We will learn to use stories and narratives to communicate effectively and to enhance understanding for general and specialized audiences.

The outcome of the 2020 elections will potentially impact U.S. public policy for the rest of this century. The U.S. electorate will be choosing between radically divergent paths on critical issues such as climate change, income equality and health care. As citizens, how can we best make sense of what may well be the most consequential federal, state and local elections of our life time?

Inland waters (lakes, rivers, streams, reservoirs, wetlands and groundwaters) are some of the most threatened ecosystems on Earth. Yet they provide critical ecosystem services: providing food and freshwater, regulating climate, and detoxifying pollutants. In this course, we will examine inland waters as ecological systems that interact with their drainage basin and the atmosphere. We will also explore how physical, chemical, and biological processes operate and impact the organisms found within each ecosystem.
