L82 EnSt 406Urban Ecosystem Principles Integration3.0 Units
Description:In today's world, your discipline has grand challenges whose solutions often lay in other realms. How will you prepare yourself to leverage the interdisciplinary partnerships required to innovatively solve and evolve in a rapidly changing world? The mission of this interdisciplinary course is to "Advance the interrelationships of ecological and human systems toward creating healthy, resilient, and bio/diverse urban environments", and will bring together experts and students in ecology, urban design, architecture, landscape architecture, economics, social work, and engineering, drawing from inside and outside the WU community. Building from foundational knowledge of ecosystem principles and function, leaders in their fields will provide lectures, readings, and student project leadership to understand and test Healthy Urban Ecosystem principles among human and ecological (non-human) systems. Class content is developed by Washington University leaders in their disciplines, past guests have included experts from external organizations such as the Missouri Botanical Garden, the Field Museum in Chicago, and others. This course provides students an opportunity to deeply engage and manipulate the interrelationships of symbiotic urban systems and apply those concepts in multi-disciplinary project applications. Projects will leverage challenges in the evolving laboratory of urban St. Louis using Healthy Urban Ecosystems principles to both research and develop multi-disciplinary integrated solutions to challenges encountered in urban areas such as security of ecosystem services, resilience, human health, climate change, social and economic inequity, and community vitality.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
