Sustainability at Hendrix

In the Odyssey Office

  • Green Odysseys: It’s not just the chemistry majors doing green research. Within the past year, there have been 18 “green” or environmentally-focused Odyssey projects. Here’s a sampling:
    • A Comparative Look at Agribusiness and Organic Gardening in Ireland and the U.S. 
    • Tangier Island: A Philological and Economic Investigation
      Heal the Earth: Environmental Training and Awareness in New Zealand
      Dollars and Doulas: A Multi-Faceted Look at Life in Intentional Living Communities
  • Odyssey Professorships: The new Odyssey Professorship program grants about $25,000 annually for each professorship position, to fund special research opportunities. Two of the five inaugural professorships will research on conservation and sustainability.
