Wellesley Spotlights First-Year Seminar Course on Sustainability and Food

The Wellesley Daily Shot on January 21st highlighted Environmental Studies Professor Jay Turner’s ES103 course: Environment & Sustainability: Food, Agriculture & Sustainability. The course asked the questions, “What’s the best way to feed the world? Organic food? Local production? Genetically modified organisms?”

Wellesley chose ES103 as the first Spotlight on Teaching feature of 2014, where the college “highlights the array of innovative, thought-provoking Wellesley courses.” Read the full Spotlight article here.
