Rebecca Kelly, associate teaching professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, is a big believer in hands-on learning. As the director of the Global Environmental Change and Sustainability (GECS) program, she encourages students to get their hands dirty (literally!) as they study environmental problems and the challenge of developing a more sustainable society. Kelly practices what she preaches in her personal life, exploring the stream behind her house, using organic foods, and making beehives.
