Ecological Planning Faculty

The ecological planning (EP) curriculum within the M.S. Program in the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources reflects an exciting collaboration between the Field Naturalist (FN) Program and the Rubenstein School. It arises out of the need to integrate natural science and the social sciences in the understanding, planning, and management of the human-nature symbiosis. To achieve these goals requires faculty expertise from a variety of academic units at the University of Vermont. Thus, this non-thesis program provides an intensive field and classroom experience designed to build a strong foundation for tackling the tough interdisciplinary issues of ecosystem and landscape stewardship.

Faculty who participate in the program through serving on graduate studies committees, teaching classes, and providing other experiences include:

Deane Wang, Associate Professor, Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources (RSENR)

Jeffrey Hughes, Associate Professor, Plant Biology & RSENR & Director of the Field Naturalist Program
