ESP Coordinator, Prof. Susan Allen-Gil, awarded a NATO grant
The following is taken from The Ithacan, 9/6/07:
Biology professor awarded NATO grant for research Susan Allen-Gil, associate professor of biology, was
awarded the NATO Science for Peace and Security Program Grant in late July to research higher education
and its impact on environmental security.
Allen-Gil, who also coordinates the Ithaca College environmental studies program, will work with colleagues in Canada, Israel and the Ukraine to plan a discussion of her topic. A conference is set to be held in Kharkiv, Ukraine in May 2008.
Allen-Gil said she is glad to know that NATO sees environmental issues as a priority and that the grant helps her establish international connections.
A collection of Allen-Gil’s papers, titled “Rethinking Higher Education to Meet the New Challenges of Environmental Security,” will be published in the NATO Science series in 2008.
