Our wonderful colleague and award-winning professor emerita, Denise Scheberle, was just awarded one of the top teaching honors in Political Science. Professor Scheberle is 2012 winner of American Political Science Association’s Teaching Award. We always knew that Denise was a super teacher, but this distinction signifies national recognition of this fact. Congratulations, Denise!

During December and May graduation ceremonies participating students are greeted by Green Pledge posters they can sign. Part of the national movement, “Green Pledge” states that UWGB graduates will consider environmental and social justice aspects in their lives and future jobs. You can recognize a signee by the green ribbon he or she is wearing at the graduation ceremony. This is the fourth year our unit is sponsoring the Green Pledge, which has become our proud tradition!

On behalf of everyone in Public and Environmental Affairs — happy holidays to all our colleagues, students, alumni and friends. Have a wonderful holiday season and a restful winter break!
Professor Scheberle’s new book Environmental Heroes, Villains and the Rest of Us challenges each of us to think more deeply about our roles in environmental protection. In doing so, the book explores several notable cases, including the release of tons of methyl isocyanate gas in Bhopal, India; asbestos contamination in Libby, Montana; the BP oil spill and mountaintop removal in West Virginia. It also explores famous and everyday environmental heroes and the impact they have made in protecting the environment. We cannot wait to read the book!
Dear students in PA, EPP, and Political Science programs !
Our next semi-annual Open House where we share strategies for success in the program and beyond has been scheduled! During our Spring 2012 Open House gathering, you will get information about program requirements, double-majoring, internships, certificates, teaching and research opportunities, tips for applying to graduate school, including Law Schools, information about getting involved on campus, and much more. You will meet most of the faculty members in the PEA Department and will have a chance to ask us any questions you might have. This event is for all students, but it is particularly helpful for those of you who just signed up for one of our majors or minors. There will be lots of informal conversations and friendly advice. And some light refreshments will be served.
Please join us on Monday, January 30, 4-5PM in Alumni A/B rooms of the University Union (next to the Cafeteria).
Professor Levintova will spend parts of next academic year participating in the long-running program designed to promote scholarship of teaching and learning across UW campuses. Her particular research project will investigate the meaning of sustainability as defined by students participating in the UWGB semi-annual Global Summit.
