Dr. Phillip Allen and Dr. Sydney Duncan share two passions – creating a sustainable future and providing their students with high-quality learning opportunities by applying the theoretical knowledge they present in the classroom to real-world practical situations.
Together they have created a well-developed interdisciplinary project from an experiment to determine the impact on the campus environment from the use of standard pavement deicers, commonly called road salt. Joining elements from a soils class in the Department of Geography with a technical writing class in the Department of English, they construct a single, collaborative project each semester that over time is looking more deeply into road salt’s long-term environmental impact – and transforming their students’ mindset in the process.
