mainAdvancing attention to environmental issues in Human and Organizational Development (HOD)
Ashley Carse
, James Fraser, and Sara Safransky

The goal of this Eos project is to advance attention to environmental issues in the Department of Human and Organizational Development (HOD) in Vanderbilt’s Peabody College. During the 2015-16 academic year, faculty members Ashley Carse, James Fraser, and Sara Safransky will coordinate efforts to more systematically integrate environmental issues into the department’s undergraduate and graduate curricula. Given HOD’s strengths in democratic participation, social justice, and community development (domestic and international), the department is well positioned to become a leader on human-environment issues at Vanderbilt and beyond. Eos project funding will support a speaker series on “Environment, Community, and Development” to be supplemented by brown bag meetings on integrating environmental studies into the department and the collection of relevant data.
