Ed.D. Directory

Welcome from the Director

It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you all to the Educational Sustainability doctoral program at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Through this program, I hope to empower and equip you with the knowledge, skills, and resources that you need to create positive change for a more sustainable future. As educators in schools, libraries, zoos, museums, neighborhoods, and beyond, we can advocate for action towards justice, equity, inclusive participation, and the regeneration and vitality of our communities and ecosystems. Striving for sustainability is not something we can do alone. In this program you will find a support system within your

cohort, amongst faculty and staff, and beyond to the Global Affiliate Scholars, and alumni. We are a community of learners–all of us–and I am so grateful to get to learn from each of you along this journey. Meeting in-person during residency has been transformational and I am grateful for all the moments; those when I have laughed or cried, painted sunsets, meditated, gone for walks around Schmeeckle Reserve, held snakes, and much more. This program is filled with trailblazers, each bringing their own unique lens to the doctoral process. To date, we have seen students complete article-focused dissertations, curriculum-focused dissertations, photovoice dissertations and videography-based dissertations. Our alumni are now professors, researchers, and practitioners—integrating sustainability into their work in the United States and around the world. Sustainability emerged as a field focused on solving complex, wicked problems. YOU are part of these solutions and give me hope for our future. I look forward to watching you grow in this program, follow your sustainability passions, and join our global community of scholars who are transforming systems of teaching and learning.
