Grand Canyon Semester

August 26, 2016 – December 13, 2016 - " Climate Ad aptation: Issues Surrounding the Natural and Cultural Landscapes of the Southwest"

The 2016 Grand Canyon Semester investigates the landscape, cultures, and politics of the greater Grand Canyon region. It offers a life-changing learning experience in the high mountains of northern Arizona and the deep canyon country of the Colorado Plateau. Students with a wide variety of interests and passions come from across the US and around the world to join faculty in the natural sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities to investigate how humans impact, manage, interact with, and value the natural world. On back country field trips, in classrooms and art galleries, around campfires, in traditional hogans, and floating down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, we confront key environmental and social challenges in these diverse natural and cultural landscapes. See the attached flyer for more information.
