Best Buy Theater, Northrop
Free and open to the public

EVENT SUSPENDED. Read the full IAS statement on COVID-19 regarding suspended events.

The IAS is working to create additional resources related to the rest of our spring semester events that have had to be suspended due to COVID-19. We are hoping to reschedule some of these discussions for future semesters. In the meantime, please check out the resources below related to this IAS Thursday.



Jessica Hellmann and Mike Dockry discuss equity in the fields of natural resource management and environmental science, with a focus on Indigenous communities. They also share their respective journeys of shifting their environmental and higher education institutions to doing this work with greater intention, consultation, and humility.
Hellmann is the director of the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment and the Ecolab Chair in Environmental Leadership. She and her colleagues work to help build a future where people and planet foster. 
Dockry is a registered member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Forest Resources and an affiliate faculty member in the American Indian Studies Department, where he supports tribal sovereignty and works to foster collaborative and respectful research relationships.
