First-year students are being given the opportunity to “get their hands dirty and learn about ecology and conservation at the same time,” thanks to a $5,990 grant from the Baird Creek Preservation Foundation. The grant, issued to Associate Prof. Mathew Dornbush of the Natural and Applied Sciences academic unit at UW-Green Bay, will support Dornbush’s first-year seminar course titled, “Let’s Go Native: Conservation Biology in Practice.”
As an award-winning professor at a university that embraces interdisciplinarity, Regan A.R. Gurung is accustomed to finding inspiration in unexpected places.
So perhaps it’s not a surprise that an album from the musician Sting — of whom Gurung is a big fan — led to what’s becoming a signature exercise in one of Gurung’s signature courses, the “Gods, Ghosts and Goblins” freshman seminar.
