Rediscovering Higher Education's Role in the Earth Community

Marist College will host the Environmental Consortium of Colleges & Universities’ 9th Annual Conference. Explore with us how ecology can be the pedagogical core for the way we teach, learn, and apply our disciplines to meet higher education's obligation to our environmental future. Keynote by Mary Evelyn Tucker, Managing Trustee of the Thomas Berry Foundation and Co-Director, Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University, as well as plenaries, lunch social, and multi- and inter-disciplinary poster session featuring faculty and student scholarly and creative work on environmental topics in the region. The Consortium will also present the first Thomas Berry Great Work Award, recognizing a faculty member or members whose work has advanced higher education's unique and central role in the environmental future of our region, and the planet, as articulated in Father Berry's book “The Great Work: Our Way into the Future.” Berry saw a special role for higher education, which he believed is the only of society’s institutions that offers the multiple disciplines, the critical capacity, and the duty to community necessary to change humanity's destructive environmental course. Registration required, deep discount for students.
