Welcome

I am a member of the Middlebury College faculty in the Department of Economics and the  Program in Environmental Studies. In 2016-17, while on leave from Middlebury, I was a Fulbright Scholar at Ashesi University College .

My courses in 2018-19 and 2019-20 have been ‘Love in Action,‘ ‘Fighting for Justice,’ ‘Introductory Microeconomics,’ ‘Special Topics in Environmental Economics,’ and the ‘ES Senior Seminar.’ In recent years I have also taught ‘Environmental Policy,‘ MiddCORE,  ‘Social Entrepreneurship in the Liberal Arts,‘ and ‘Social Entrepreneurship and Social Justice.”

My most recent publication is “How Should We Prepare Students to Address the Challenges of our Time?” Currents in Teaching and Learning. 2018. 10(2): 2–8.

Over the last several years, I have given keynote and invited talks on social change and education at Mt. Holyoke College (2019), the Ashoka U Exchange (2018), Groton School (2018), Green Mountain College (2017), the United States Embassy in Ghana (2017), and Westmont College (2016), among other venues.

With Liz Robinson and Heather Neuwirth, I co-founded Middlebury’s Center for Social Entrepreneurship in 2012, serving as its co-director and director from 2012 to 2016. (As of July 1 2016, the CSE became the Center for Creativity, Innovation, and Social Entrepreneurship.)

My office hours during Fall Term 2019 are Tuesdays and Fridays, 2:00 – 3:30 at the Franklin Environmental Center 119, where my number is 443 – 5761.
