2022 Ethnic Studies Research Paper Award Winner

The CSUMB Library is pleased to announce the winner of our Ethnic Studies Research Paper Award. Olivia Equinoa, an Environmental Studies major graduating in Spring 2023, has won the award for her paper "Decolonization in Higher Environmental Education." In Olivia's words, her paper "introduces the practice of decolonization and discusses the importance of implementing it in higher environmental education. Using scholarly critiques and research, this paper explores ways decolonization can be enacted in universities, cautions in doing so, the consequences of not decolonizing these areas, and why it is crucial that it be practiced in the field of environmental education."

As soon as the final version is ready, this paper will be published to the Digital Commons.
