Dickinson welcomes Mark Ruffalo for Rose-Walters residency

Dickinson has presented Mark Ruffalo—award-winning actor and environmental activist—with the Sam Rose ’58 and Julie Walters Prize at Dickinson College for Global Environmental Activism. Ruffalo had words of inspiration for graduates at Commencement 2015 and returns to campus Oct. 5-6 for the Rose-Walters residency.

While in Carlisle, Ruffalo will be engaging students across topics and across campus, taking part in discussions with interns from the Center for Sustainability Education, the student workers of ALLARM, residents of the Treehouse and a group of student-leaders to explore Dickinson's initiatives in sustainability.

Classroom visits 

He’ll also be joining several classes over the course of his residency:

  • "Theatre as a Social Exploration," with Professor of Theatre Todd Wronski
  • “Environment, Culture and Values,” with Professor of English and Environmental Studies Ashton Nichols
  • “Environmental Policy,” with Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Heather Bedi
  • “Analysis and Management of Aquatic Environments,” with Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Kristin Strock
  • “Advocacy Organizations, Social Movements and the Politics of Identity,” with Assistant Professor of Political Science Kathleen Marchetti

With nearly a dozen events scheduled with students and faculty, and the campuswide event An Evening With Mark Ruffalo, students and Ruffalo will be inspiring one another in countless ways.
