ENSP399E: The Role of Evidence-Based Advocacy in Environmental Politics

Course Description: Student-Initiated Courses (STICs) is a program that helps students design, develop, and eventually teach 1-credit classes to undergraduates with the guidance of a faculty advisor. There are similar models across the country at places like UC BerkeleyStanford, and Carnegie Mellon. Last semester, the first STIC was taught by two undergraduates in the computer science department.This particular class focued on the importance of research and data in policy making.

The class invited Campus Arborist Richard Jones to lecture on his arborist work, our campus canopy, and the Arboretum.
