Strevett to Teach Senior Seminar

Professor Keith Strevett
CEES professor Keith Strevett will teach a seminar for seniors for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Oklahoma in Fall 2015.
The course is entitled “People, Science and the Environment” and will examine how people use science to understand how they relate to the environment.  It will also explore relationships between people and ecosystems and the science behind how ecosystems work.  The many forms of pollution as well as types of energy resources will be addressed.

“This four week seminar is an exciting opportunity to engage lifelong learners in our community.  I am looking forward to interacting with the participants and hearing of the changes in people’s perceptions of and how they relate to the environment over time.”
