Kip Curtis, associate professor of Environmental History/Mansfield campus, has joined the Office of Outreach and Engagement as a faculty fellow. In this role, he will continue his focus on the development and implementation of a replicable model of community engagement that results in expansion of the Mansfield Microfarm to other Ohio communities.
In this 30 percent appointment, Curtis will focus his efforts on a number of key areas that will inform the potential replication of this model. More specifically, he will:
- Assess the current project to identify future best practices, strategies, and opportunities for replication.
- Share research through peer reviewed publications so that others may replicate this model in their communities.
- Advise individuals and communities in Ohio focusing on broad-based community engagement strategies that could lead to this project replication.
Curtis specializes in Environmental History and Studies with research and teaching foci on mining, environmental ideas, and food systems. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in modern United States history and environmental history and offers independent studies in environmental history and the environmental studies and sciences.
