Suggested Courses for Fall 2018

We at F&ES believe that, as the environmental leaders of tomorrow, we have the responsibility to not just become experts in our areas of interest.
We also have a responsibility to be aware and knowledgeable of the history, intentionality, positionality, and the many (positive and negative) possible consequences of our work.
As members of the F&ES, we ask that you be courteous to every person in our community. Further, we ask you to be considerate of everyone’s experience and perspective, including those of your F&ES colleagues, your New Haven neighbors, and the subjects of your work. This is a surprisingly difficult challenge, one that requires that you take it upon yourself to further your education and understanding of issues of race, ethnicity, gender, class, power, privilege, colonialism, and other dimensions of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe that gaining a strong background in these areas will allow you to better carry out your work in a fully conscious and humble manner. Thankfully the greater Yale academic community provides many opportunities for you to delve into these topics. Below is a list of courses that may be of interest to you.
