NCSE Peer-Reviewed Publications

NCSE and CEDD edited a special issue of the Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences (JESS) titled Negotiating Boundaries: Effective Leadership of Interdisciplinary Environmental and Sustainability Programs (June 2016).

The special issue explores the challenges and opportunities confronting higher education related to leadership at a variety of levels and the creation of linkages between students, faculty, administration, and community stakeholders necessary to address the many “wicked problems” facing society. Articles address four primary themes—Interdisciplinary Team Building Strategies, Curriculum and Community Connections, Institution-Level Leadership and Perspectives, and Interdisciplinary Leadership and Scholarship Support.
