In January 2019, Dr. Kathy Wagner Hill, Director of the Center for Advanced Governmental Studies (CAGS), traveled to Cuba with two other professors and 29 AAP students as part of the course, Nature Conservation and Sustainability in Cuba.  The international study course was cross-listed from the Environmental Science and Policy (ESP) Program.  Dr. Hill co-taught the inter-disciplinary course with Dr. Jerry Burgess, a geologist who directs the ESP Program, and Professor Jill Caporale, a biologist.  CAGS students comprised about a third of the class and with Dr. Hill brought a political science and public management perspective to the intensive course.  Here is the first of several videos that help capture some of what was gained from experiencing Cuba first hand.  This one features Dr. Hill and ones that follow will highlight what some of our CAGS students in the course valued most from this learning adventure.
