The Department of Environmental Studies is very pleased to announce the hire of our new chair, Dr. Jeffery Foran. Dr. Foran assumed his role as department chair on July 31. We thank Dr. Dudley Burton, our outgoing chair who has served in that role since 2001. Dr. Burton will be teaching full-time with the department and looks forward to working closely with Dr. Foran for a smooth transition.
Dr. Michelle Stevens will be travelling with ENVS Major Clara Crossman to Amman, Jordan, during June. They will be guests of the Royal Palaces and the Royal Jordanian Nature Society. They will be conducting a pilot research project on the wetlands and hima system of Jordan to then apply to the Mesopotamian Marshes of Iraq.
