A new year and new challenges and goals

To our readers, friends, and colleagues,

As we begin the year 2022, many challenges lie ahead that will require that we increase our knowledge of the myriad environmental problems and crises that face us as faculty, students, and staff in higher education.  We are happy to now have a new co-director with Beth Abels (Pierce) and a new colleague for our cyber presence, Xiao Behlendorf (Valley).
