The Alvord Center for Global & Environmental Studies held a “Take Action Senior Celebration” on Monday, May 23, in the Meadows.
Alvord Center for Global & Environmental Studies
The mission of the Alvord Center is to develop globally and environmentally engaged leaders. Through traditional and experiential learning, curricular-based travel, and student-driven research and action, our students and faculty develop important global and environmental competencies that enable them to empathize with others; better understand local and global trends and issues; and develop innovative and collaborative solutions for the common good.
Building upon a recognition that our world is interconnected in a multitude of ways, Loomis Chaffee offers a course of academic study, extracurricular activities, and place-based learning through our Global & Environmental Studies Certificate, International Education Programs, and Environmental Sustainability initiatives.
We may refer to our school as “the Island,” but opportunities to learn about the world and how to play an active role in it abound at Loomis.
Global & Environmental Studies Certificate Program
A comprehensive program of study based on the four learning pillars of the Alvord Center Engaged Citizenship Matrix: Seek Knowledge, Enhance Understanding, Develop Skills, and Take Action.
International Education Programs
Short-term, faculty-led study abroad programming focused on providing Loomis students with opportunities to engage in active, inquiry-based learning and to cultivate meaningful connections to people and places beyond The Island.
A diverse research and place-based experiential education program immersing students in hands-on, collaborative learning and action-driven stewardship.
The buzzing of bees surrounded the Island recently as Visiting Environmentalist and bee expert Steve Rogenstein ’88 met with students and faculty May 3–5.
Marcia I. Pescador Jimenez, a Boston University assistant professor of epidemiology, shared her research with the Loomis Chaffee community on Tuesday, April 19, during a convocation address and class visits.
Loomis Chaffee celebrated Earth Week April 15–22 with a program of activities and events ranging from student-led panel discussions and presentations to syrup-tasting and an open-mic night.
Loomis Chaffee seniors in the Global and Environmental Studies Certificate program welcomed a specialist in refugee and immigrant resettlement to the program’s senior seminar on Thursday, March 23.
