When you call a help desk, do you ever wonder where they are located? Where was your smartphone manufactured? You're not really sure, are you? Why not build in the United States? Why did they choose offshore manufacturing? Is this good? Bad? What about workers? How are they treated? The environment?
All pretty good questions... Welcome to business in the 21st century. In this course, we try to answer these questions with academic content, real-world examples and current practice.

Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Elmwood Campus, 6:00pm-8:50pm
Instructor: Bruce Fleury
Global climate change, loss of habitat, overpopulation, the energy crisis – all of these problems can be solved, but only if we become environmentally aware. Global Environmental Change is an introduction to environmental biology designed for non-science majors, with no laboratory requirement.
Somewhere in the course of human evolution, we have lost touch with the Earth. This class will attempt to acquaint you with the natural processes that keep our planet alive, and the many ways in which we have upset the balance of nature. It will also help make you an environmentally literate citizen, who can speak (and vote) with authority on environmental issues.
