PitE Faculty Members Honored as Arthur F. Thurnau Professors

Adam Simon and Michela Zint are recognized for outstanding contributions to undergraduate education as this year’s Arthur F. Thurnau Professors.

The Program in the Environment (PitE) offers both a broad liberal arts education in environmental topics and the opportunity for students to pursue various lines of individual interest in considerable depth.  Broadly speaking, PitE’s curriculum focuses on the complex interactions of human beings and their environment.  To understand these interactions and learn how to create more rational and equitable forms of human habitation on this planet, PitE students develop a multidisciplinary perspective integrating the methods and approaches of the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities.
