Northern Forest Studies: A Regional Approach to Undergraduate Learning

This paper proposes the development of an integrative, immersive, and diverse placebased
undergraduate program focused on the nature, culture, and economics of the
Northern Forest region of New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Such a
program in Northern Forest Studies capitalizes on a developing inter-institutional
dialogue begun in November, 2008 within the framework of the Northern Forest Higher
Education Resource Network (NFHERN) to draw on existing offerings in colleges and
universities across the region in the framework of a broad, regional consortium of
programs and courses.
