Environmental studies professor Terry Osborne focuses on the spiritual connections between Americans and the natural world as well as Earth’s current environmental degradation. He teaches the first-year seminar, “COVER Stories: Community Building & the Environment.” The community-based course explores the construction of community as we know it through storytelling and writing. Students work with a local organization called COVER, which gives urgent home repair for members of the Upper Valley.
Osborne has been teaching courses with community-based social impact missions for over a decade, including his first-year seminar ENVS 7: COVER Stories: Community Building and the Environment. Osborne's course was paired with a Social Impact Practicum through the Dartmouth Center for Service in 2016.
