Udall Center Names Environmental Policy Fellows for 2010–11
The University of Arizona’s Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy, with financial support from the Institute of the Environment, has selected two UA faculty members as Udall Center Environmental Policy Fellows for 2010–11.
Benedict Colombi, assistant professor of American Indian studies, and Connie Woodhouse, associate professor of geography and development, will affiliate with the Udall Center for one semester during the coming academic year. Both are affiliates of the Institute of the Environment, which funds the fellowships to support research or curriculum development in the public-policy aspects of global environmental change.
Colombi will design, test, and implement a survey of American Indian tribes in Arizona to explore the creation of a graduate certificate and joint degree program for students in the UA American Indian Studies Program who are interested in natural resources management.
Woodhouse will develop a graduate certificate program in communicating and co-producing science to provide UA students in the environmental sciences and other disciplines with the theory and practical experience to communicate better with diverse stakeholders.
Since the inception of the Udall Center Fellows program in 1990, the center has named 121 fellows from 37 departments and programs across the UA. The Institute for the Environment has supported 26 of those fellows representing 17 academic units.
