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 in early October 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 theCenter for Sustainability Education,
the student workers ofALLARM,
residents of the Treehouse and a group of student-leaders to explore
Dickinson's initiatives in sustainability.
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
with Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Heather Bedi
“Analysis and Management of
Aquatic Environments,” with Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Kristin Strock
Organizations, Social Movements and the Politics of Identity,” with Assistant Professor of Political Science
With nearly a dozen events scheduled with students and faculty, and the campuswide event An Evening With Mark Ruffalo (see below), students and Ruffalo will be inspiring one another in countless ways.
