Attend this virtual information session to learn more about the Traverse City, INT 322 Wicked Problems of Sustainability Immersion Course , a 3-credit course offered by the GVSU's Traverse City Regional Center and the Intergrative, Religious and Intercultural Studies department.  

While exploring the amazing water resources in the Traverse City region, students in this immersive field school will gain an understanding of “wicked problems” and the complexity of utilizing our water resources while sustaining its water quality.  Students will investigate water quality, consider issues for human and environmental health, and engage with local and regional stakeholders.

Students will also explore first-hand how land and water issues interface while kayaking the Boardman River and sailing on Grand Traverse Bay. Case studies of wicked problems will be explored.  Additionally, students will participate in a collaborative group project.

This course is hybrid. The second week entails daily immersive field experiences in the Traverse City area. The first and third week are online, asynchronous.

Led by Prof. Kate Fairman, INT 322 01 (CRN 41488) begins May 8th online.
