Postdoctoral Associate

Kim Coleman is Postdoctoral Associate at the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont.  She is broadly trained in the study of human dimensions of natural resources with particular interest in the intersection of civic engagement and natural resources.

Her research to date has had two foci: 1) community involvement in public land management and 2) evaluations of environmentally-focused service-learning. She is currently involved in an interdisciplinary project that focuses on engaging local population with UVM’s school forests and investigating how learning about research at the forests impacts nonmaterial benefits people receive from school forest visits.
