Environmental Science and Policy


At Smith College we lack a major program of study in Environmental Science and Policy, and as a part of our sustainability initiative on campus, we should expand our curriculum to branch out, into the Northampton community and form an educational agreement with Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School. Graduates of Smith College should have a grasp of the vocational fields offered at Smith High School be able to make ecologically sound decisions for themselves, the community and the planet. Smith College should take notice and participate with the local community where there is great potential to change the dominant modes of thought through education. There is also great potential for crossover education in academic and vocational subjects at the high school level as well as at Smith College. We can look at SVAHS as a model institution as well as a partner in experiential and transformative learning.
