TranscriptionSegment 100: Academy of the Environment Air Date: 1/11/05 Tease @ 23:27 or 24:09 "Students interested in studying the environment at UNR now have a lot more choices. I'm Shelly Purdy, I'll tell you about the new Academy for the Environment coming up on the Lake Tahoe Report." Anchor Intro: For students interested in environmental studies, the University of Nevada now has a new place for them to go to get information about the many programs available at there. Shelly Purdy takes a look at UNR's new Academy for the Environment in tonight's Lake Tahoe Report. ((TAKE PKG)) ((Track 1)) Incoming students and current students interested in studying environmental issues at UNR may not be aware of all that's available to them here. From environmental science to environmental literature to political science…the study options in the environmental field are widely varied. The problem is many students and faculty don't know about the different choices and options are. And that's where the Academy for the Environment comes in. ((s/u @ 24:25 or 25:03 Shelly Purdy)) "This new Academy for the Environment is not a new college. There aren't going to be any new faculty or classes. It's essentially a clearing house where students can go to find environmental programs available on campus. ((sot @ 13:13 Mike Collopy, Interim Executive director, Academy for the Environment)) "The idea is that the academy would be an overarching umbrella to coordinate environmental programs that are already here on campus. Not to compete with them or take their place, but to help them meet their own needs but to also create collaborative opportunities for folks in different colleges to work together who may not know each other." ((track 2)) A new website will soon be developed, an office will be established and staff will be hired to assist students and faculty with finding the various environmental programs currently available on campus. The hope is that the Academy will also create opportunities for faculty members and students in different departments to work together. ((sot @ 14:39)) "Whether you're in the biological or physical sciences or whether you're in art, humanities or political science, English literature…there is an environmental component in many of these disciplines." ((track 3) The trick is getting that word out to those who want the information. With the Lake Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition, I'm shelly Purdy for KOLO News Channel 8.
