Don't miss this opportunity to learn from ENVS naturalist, tracker and department chair Jason Hamilton and fulfill your ICC requirements. This is a “Maymester” course being held in June 2017. ENVS 14200: The Art and Science of Tracking will fulfill the following requirements: ICC Inquiry, Imagination, and Innovation and Mind, Body, Spirit themes and Natural Sciences perspective designation.  

The class will introduce you to wildlife tracking techniques and show you how to read what’s actually happening in the landscape – feeding, breeding and other animal behaviors, and their interactions with humans and with other animals. It will enhance your ability to “read” the landscape and perceive many of the activities and interactions that bring the story of natural landscapes to life.   

Summer 2017 registration is now open!

Following our peaceful and legal demonstrations on Monday and Friday of last week, at which IC Contingent Faculty gathered together with student allies, tenured faculty, and community members to protest the refusal of the administration to settle a fair contract with the union, we received a sharply worded letter from William Kerry, IC’s Chief of Police, threatening “a variety of actions up to and including legal proceedings” should the union attempt to picket or demonstrate peacefully within college property. To justify this blatant abrogation of the right of IC faculty and students to free speech and assembly in their own workplace, Chief Kerry accuses the participants of the demonstrations last week of having “stopped traffic” and “entered the college.”
