Description

SAVE THE DATE: Dr. Thomas Easley will present a Master Class on Saturday May 18, 2018 following this public lecture on Friday.

Join us at the Eileen Rockefeller House, or RockE, for a seminar by Hip Hop Forester and Assistant Dean of Community and Inclusion, Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, Dr. Thomas Easley. Lite snacks and refreshments provided. Ages 18+. Space limited. Please RSVP by registering before noon Friday.

Abstract (by Dr. Easley): As a forester I developed a deeper understanding of why diversity works so well, and I applied that approach to hip-hop, health, environmental justice, and spirituality, which I will share in this seminar. This information can help others broaden their message to diverse audiences and partners, and hopefully help to share the Adirondack park experience with more people of color.

The Speaker: Dr. Thomas Easley is Assistant Dean of Community and Inclusion at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. Easley comes to Yale from North Carolina State University (NCSU), where he spent 13 years as the Director of Community Diversity at the university’s College of Natural Resources. He has a master’s degree in forest genetics from Iowa State University and a doctorate of education from NCSU. At F&ES he works with the entire community — faculty, staff, and students — on a range of diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. Dr. Easley has also been pastor for an NCSU campus ministry that has attracted students from a wide range of backgrounds and he regularly performs hip-hop.
