Roles and responsibilities of senior administrators in nurturing strong ERE programs
Presented are three short, role-playing case studies that could be used in a curriculum planning retreat to understand the barriers and opportunities that faculty and administrators must face in developing interdisciplinary programs. These were prepared for the PKAL assembly in Portland, Oregon last year by James Howard of Humboldt State University, Marlene Moore of the University of Portland, and C. Gary Reiness of Lewis and Clark College. Although the specific theme is environmental science/studies programs, the issues raised in these case studies are generic to efforts to build and sustain all kinds of programs that cut across disciplines.
