We have assembled three speakers who together give a very balanced view of the issue.
|The first speaker, Dr. John Munsell, is an Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech’s College of Natural Resources and a Forest Management Extension Specialist. In his presentation Dr. Munsell introduces sustainable forestry practices and analyzes one of the field’s major certification bodies, the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).|
|Next is Dr. Brian Bond, an Associate Professor at Virginia Tech’s Department of Wood Science and Forest Products. Dr. Bond describes the market for FSC certified products and presents some intriguing research into consumer demand.|
|Completing our lecture on sustainable forestry is Mr. Charlie Becker from the Virginia Department of Forestry. Mr. Becker draws from over 20 years of experience to give an overview of forestry practices in Virginia. He also discusses how forest certification programs such as FSC uniquely affect Virginia landowners.|
“Why did I write this book?” Bugliosi asks. “I wrote this book…out of anger. I do not want this guy, George Bush, to get away with murder.”
Well-known writer, scholar and editor of African-American literature for both academic and general audiences, Deborah E. McDowell, was recently named director of the Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies at UVa.
The Woodson Institute, an interdisciplinary teaching and research center, was established in 1981 in response to student and faculty requests for a more coherent African-American and African Studies program and a more aggressive program of minority recruitment at the University. It is named after Carter Woodson, the “father of African-American history,” to honor the Virginia-born founder of African and African-American Studies who also inaugurated Black History Week (now Black History Month).
