Arthur Kneeland is a senior lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Stout in the biology department, he teaches an array of courses, like Plants and People, a plant science course with an anthropological approach, how humans use plants to survive on earth. He also manages the small but growing sustainability minor where he teaches the Science and Sustainability Capstone course. In this class, students explore sustainability problems through the triple bottom line perspective. Our partners are on and off campus stakeholders with a wide array of student majors, attempting to develop creative solutions to real world problems. He is a co-Principal Investigator on the NSF LAKES-Research Experience for Undergraduates, which uses an interdisciplinary approach to study the nutrient pollution in the Red Cedar Watershed. Arthur, along with campus partners, has started and aided in operations of the UW-Sprout campus garden, where students are allowed to take ownership of hands-on agricultural production. The idea of letting student workers have a semi-supervised free reign in order to let them succeed or fail of their own accord has been essential to his learning and is an important garden philosophy. While community is also essential, any time students ask for help, it is given with a smile.
