To explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth; to practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources; to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out those objectives.
However long overdue my thank-you is, I would like to gratefully accept my election to the presidency of the Sierra Club. I would like to thank my predecessors, Steve Richter, Paul Mejia, and Steven Kramer, who displayed excellence in leadership. As well, I would like to thank our club's regular members.
I am excited to be part of the cabinet of members who were also duly elected to their office: Jacob Berger as the Vice President, Tyler Stewart as Treasurer, Libby Donohue as Secretary, and Ellen Matheny as our Campaign Director. I appreciate everybody’s commitment to this organization, volunteerism, and sustaining our social circle. These three points are what I expect to encourage out of myself, and I will try to lead in a manner that will be exciting and fun and beneficial to ourselves, the community, and the world.

Environmental sociologists study everything from toxic exposure to habitat destruction. In Environmental Sociology, the focus is global as well as local. Students will develop a sociological lens for understanding environmental changes. The class will seek to develop social solutions to environmental problems.
