GLOBES graduate students traveled to Washington, D.C. in early May to make science policy presentations to U.S. State Department and other federal agency officials. The trip to the nation’s capital was part of the U.S. State Department Diplomacy Lab project course taught by University of Notre Dame Professor Emeritus David Lodge, an expert on invasive species and water quality issues. The course was organized around group projects that studied transferable policy lessons between the North American Great Lakes and the African Great Lakes as well as risk management studies related to the rapidly changing Arctic region. The trip to D.C. was funded in part by a mini-grant award from the John J. Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values. Read More

The GLOBES Program in Environment and Society will soon mark an important 10th anniversary milestone.  In August of 2006, the first cohort of eight graduate students began a regimen of interdisciplinary training activities designed to prepare young researchers to work across disciplines and to contribute lasting solutions to grand challenges in the environment and human health. Under the direction of Professor Jeffrey Feder, Department of Biological Sciences, GLOBES administered more than 50 fellowship awards over a period of seven years with funding support from the National Science Foundation’s Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) $3M grant award.
