Karin Warren has been named president-elect of the Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS) Board of Directors.
The AESS serves the faculty, students and staff of the 1,000-plus interdisciplinary environmental programs in North America and around the world. The organization seeks to strengthen teaching, research, and service in environmental studies and sciences, and to improve communication across boundaries that too often divide the traditional academic disciplines. The association facilitates the professional development of its members, not just as individuals, but also to advance environmental studies and sciences as a whole.
“I’m excited and grateful for the opportunity to serve as President-Elect with AESS President Kat Owens and continuing and new AESS Board members,” said Warren, Randolph’s Herzog Family Professor of Environmental Studies and Science. “I respect the potential and power of shared vision and collaborative leadership and look forward to helping to increase participation and engagement in our organization and inclusion of a diversity of perspectives and experiences.”
Candidates were selected by their peers in May, and the newly elected will take office following the close of the annual AESS conference, which is being held in Baltimore later this month.
Warren has served on the AESS board of directors since 2018. To learn more about the organization, visit https://aessonline.org.Tags: environmental science, environmental studies, Karin Warren
