I am president of Unity College in Unity, ME. Unity College is a science based environmental undergraduate institution. Our curriculum is developed in the framework of sustainability science and includes a strong emphasis on the humanities as the prosocial foundation for critical thinking and communication skills.
I am a research ecologist by training. For 20 years I was affiliated with the Smithsonian and my research focused on tropical forests in Central and South America. For the last 10 years I have focused on climate change, serving as science advisor to policy makers and directing environmental science programs at the University of Florida and University of Idaho.
Five things that I can't live without: My family, a planet with a sustaining ecology, meaningful work that is bigger than me, my human community, my dogs,.
I require comfortable, safe lodging. I am tidy and don't drink or smoke...ever. I usually travel alone; primarily on College related business.
