Faculty & Staff

Michael Childers

One of the many great things about UNI is that faculty bring to the classroom insights gained through hands-on research. This in-the-field research, or in the case of Michael Childers, in-the-mountain and in-the-park research, makes for lively, thought-provoking classroom discussions as he gives UNI students insight into the latest happenings in environmental issues.
