Department of Applied Environmental Science
Victoria Derr, Ph.D.
My teaching and research focus on the intersections between sustainable communities, place-conscious environmental education, and social justice, particularly in historically excluded communities. I am interested in children and youth participation in school and community settings as a means to foster sense of place, health, sustainability, and climate resilience.
