Presenters and Guest Speakers

In order to maintain the interdisciplinary nature of the course and bring in people from all areas of expertise, the course will be in the form of a seminar with guest speakers, field experiences and facilitated group discussion. The speakers will be a mixture of faculty and community partners with the support of a Graduate Assistant.

The faculty will come from all disciplines including Sociology, Political Science, Biology, Geology, Engineering, Visual and Performance Art, English, Education, Economics, Business, and more. The community partners come from organizations like The City of Dayton Water Department, Miami Conservancy District and Five Rivers MetroParks. Through their work with community partners, students gain an opportunity to develop professional relationships within the Dayton region. These opportunities afford students a chance to apply their education to real occupational situations and make connections that can continue outside of the classroom.
