PLU recently had the honor of hosting Dr. Carolyn Finney, Assistant Professor of Environmental Science, Policy and Management at the University of California-Berkeley and author of Black Faces, White Spaces, at our annual University Conference to kick off the new academic year. She reminded us that we are inescapably interwoven with each other and with the Earth. What we do to each other and the Earth, we do to ourselves. It was a powerful message for the PLU community as we seek to fully embody the inclusive community that we aspire to be. Read on to learn more about Dr. Finney, her research, her ability to ask tough questions and her remarkable storytelling.
