What is Stewardship?

What We Do
The Immersion in Environmental Stewardship and Science asks students to embrace the role of leader, scientist, activist, scholar, and entrepreneur. Students will learn how “environmental stewardship” involves the words we use, the works we undertake, and the wisdom that guides our behavior. Through interrelated courses of study, students will explore the interdependence of scientific knowledge, communication strategies, social organization, ethical vision, and routine activity. Developing skills in critical reasoning, collaboration, communication, and creative problem-solving, students will strengthen the practical and intellectual foundations of lifelong environmental stewardship.
