Lindsey Pekurny ’16 recently attended the Conservation Leaders for Tomorrow workshop at Kehoe Conservation Camp in Bomoseen, Vt. Dr. Valorie Titus (natural resources management) also attended as an instructor. Conservation Leaders for Tomorrow (CLfT) is a professional development program designed for student and professional leaders within the natural resource sciences. CLfT focuses on hunting awareness and conservation education among academic programs and government agencies. CLfT consists of four-day workshops that blend interactive classroom discussion with field experiences. Workshop participants engage with leading natural resource professionals and conservationists in a highly interactive educational setting.
Prof. Steven Fesmire (philosophy) recently published Dewey, an exploration into the life and ideas of one of America’s foremost philosophers. The book was recently given an “essential” review from the magazine Choice, a publication of the Association of College and Research Libraries. The essential designation refers to publications “of exceptional quality for academic audiences and a core title for academic libraries supporting programs in relevant disciplines.” The review reads in part: “Fesmire helpfully ends with a suggestive discussion of Dewey’s influence and legacy. This book is superb in showing the interconnectedness of Dewey’s philosophy, with each chapter building on the ideas developed in previous ones.”
