FOR 464 - Cultural Responsiveness In Natural Resources

Description: This course explores a variety of topics under NAU's Elevating Excellence program grant to improve cultural awareness and responsiveness in natural resources management (NRM). Designed for intensive self-reflection and understanding of different cultures and how personal bias or lack of inclusive education and understanding can translate to bias in professional decision-making in natural resources management. The course is designed with one module per week to allow students time to process information and think through how their lived experience affects the way they view certain topics. The course will include online discussions in both small groups and full class forum, mostly non-academic reading and videos. By the end of this course, you will be prepared to engage, collaborate and effectively communicate with diverse stakeholders in natural resources settings. Co-convened with FOR 564. Letter grade only.
