Working from the foundations of traditional disciplines to open new avenues of thought between them; bridging the gap between the arts and sciences, verbal and mathematical skills, the imaginative and the empirical.
Motivated by a concern for how we ought to live and learn, and for our responsibilities towards one another and the world.
Literally taking learning into your own hands; directly experiencing and living with challenges and questions.
What is Stewardship?
“Stewardship” encompasses leadership, understanding, communication, civic and global responsibility, but with a crucial difference: it recognizes that we are all temporary care-holders of the world, its resources, its cultures, and its peoples, and that we should aim at improving and conserving these for future generations.
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.
